Securing Solr with Ranger ERROR 500

New Contributor

my solr can working normal.when i use the security.json like this

{
    "authentication": {
        "class": "solr.BasicAuthPlugin",
        "blockUnknown": true,
        "credentials": {
            "root": "v1kx29vsv2JHda4iY+rqpNpHscwW29rH1z6rzI/6LVI= tL5DTOVBr1eRaW8u1Hyo5JluY8bMqkeQJ573pgLynDw="
        }
    },
    "authorization": {
        "class": "solr.RuleBasedAuthorizationPlugin"
    }
}

but when i Securing Solr Collections with Ranger as below:

{
    "authentication": {
        "class": "solr.BasicAuthPlugin",
        "credentials": {
            "root": "v1kx29vsv2JHda4iY+rqpNpHscwW29rH1z6rzI/6LVI= tL5DTOVBr1eRaW8u1Hyo5JluY8bMqkeQJ573pgLynDw="
        }
    },
    "authorization": {
        "class": "org.apache.ranger.authorization.solr.authorizer.RangerSolrAuthorizer"
    }
}

solr-plugin can show in ranger-audit-plugin. But solr cant work when i open http://localhost:8983/solr/

Re: Securing Solr with Ranger ERROR 500

Did you enable the Ranger Solr Plugin using the enable-ranger-plugin.sh script? What version of Solr and Ranger is this?

You might want to enable the Ranger Plugin again and make sure that all ranger jars/xmls have been copied to .../solr/server/solr-webapp/webapp/WEB-INF/classes and .../solr/server/solr-webapp/webapp/WEB-INF/libs

(Validate the paths, not sure if they are 100% correct)

i use solr-5.5.0 ranger0.6.2 .i have enable the Ranger Plugin again.and copy from solr-plugin/lib、solr-plugin/lib/solr-plugin/lib/ranger-solr-plugin-impl、solr-plugin/install/lib all jar to .../solr/server/solr-webapp/webapp/WEB-INF/libs. and solr-plugin/install/solr-plugin/install/enable all xml to .../solr/server/solr-webapp/webapp/WEB-INF/classes. And restarted the solr but nothing changed.

Re: Securing Solr with Ranger ERROR 500

Sorry I probably should have been more explicit, the ranger plugin script will copy all jars and xmls to the locations I mentioned above, you dont have to copy anything on your own. Can you run an "ls -al" on the two directories and post the result?

Also can you upload the Ranger xml files inside the "classes" directory?

How does your solr.in.sh look like?

Re: Securing Solr with Ranger ERROR 500

New Contributor

yes,the ranger plugin script will copy jars and xmls to the locations you mentioned above.I also copy some manually to make sure all is in it.

and the "classes"

-rwxr--r-- 1 root root 2270 Oct 25 18:14 ranger-policymgr-ssl.xml
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root   69 Oct 25 18:14 ranger-security.xml

-rwxr--r-- 1 root root 2913 Oct 25 18:14 ranger-solr-security.xml

Re: Securing Solr with Ranger ERROR 500

I assume your solr instance is running under the solr-user? If yes, make sure all the ranger files and the directory "classes" is owned by that user.

Does that Solr Home directory exist, "/opt/solr_8001/data" ? Also is it owned by the user that is running the solr instances?

i have see your article

https://community.hortonworks.com/articles/15159/securing-solr-collections-with-ranger-kerberos.html...

i have some question :

1 .if kerbores is needed for solr-plugin.

2.which user your use in solr ,and what user you write in ranger-solr-service.

3.which commond you use to start solrcloud.

Re: Securing Solr with Ranger ERROR 500

@Fang Heart

1.I think you can use Ranger Solr Plugin without Kerberos, however kerberos provides the authentication layer and therefore an additional layer of security.

2.Solr itself runs under the solr user, however the users that are allowed to access and manage your solr collections is totally up to you. You can define separate policies for each Solr Collection in Ranger and assign permissions to groups or users

3.Usually, I configure my Solr instances in a way that allows me to use "service solr start" to start my solr cloud. In order to make this work, you have to make sure ZK_HOST is defined in your solr config (solr.in.sh)

Hello,i install the kerbeos it can work normal .but i want kown if we can Test Connectioncan show successly in ranger , if we can ,what i should do?

Re: Securing Solr with Ranger ERROR 500

@Fang Heart

In order to test the connection between the Ranger Solr Plugin and the Ranger service, you can login to the Ranger Admin UI and go to Audit -> Plugins. This will show a list of synchronizations between the Ranger Plugin and Ranger service. You can also check /etc/ranger/<repository name>/policycache/.... and check the timestamp of the policycache json.
