We are using solr as solr cloud with running on 4 nodes of solr server and most of peoples are having access on Admin Console.
Our solr developers are supplying DB password in plain text in data-config.xml file which is accessible over Admin Console and anybody can see the same.
Could you please let me know how we can hide/ecrypt or store password somewhere in file and use the same in data-config.xml.
Appriciate your help to resolve the issue.
I see that upstream Solr has added this capability via JIRA SOLR-4392. This feature does not exist in the current CDH5.x but will almost certainly be available with CDH6 when that is released.
