Compatibility
------------

This version of this component is fully functional with Apache ManifoldCF 1.6 and
above.  It is backwards compatible with earlier versions as well, except for the fact
that two additional Solr fields are required for this plugin to work.

Upgrading
---------

If you are replacing a version of Apache ManifoldCF Plugin for Apache Solr 4.x that is
older than version 2.0, you must declare two additional fields (representing parent
acls and parent deny acls), and reindex all your documents, so all six fields have the.
correct values. Otherwise, the plugin will prevent you from viewing any documents.

Instructions for Building Apache ManifoldCF Plugin for Apache Solr 4.x from Source
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Download the Java SE 6 JDK (Java Development Kit), or greater, from
   http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/index.html.
   You will need the JDK installed, and the %JAVA_HOME%\bin directory included
   on your command path.  To test this, issue a "java -version" command from your
   shell and verify that the Java version is 1.6 or greater.

2. Download and install Maven 3.0 or later.  Maven installation and configuration
   instructions can be found here:  http://maven.apache.org

3. Building distribution assemblies

   Execute the following command in order to build the distribution assemblies

   mvn package assembly:assembly

   The JAR packages can be found in the target folder:

   target/apache-manifoldcf-solr-4.x-plugin-<VERSION>.jar where <VERSION> is the release version


Getting Started
---------------

There are two ways to hook up security to Solr in this package.  The first is using
a Query Parser plugin.  The second is using a Search Component.  In both cases,
the first step is to have ManifoldCF installed and running.  See:
http://manifoldcf.apache.org/release/trunk/en_US/how-to-build-and-deploy.html

Then, you will need to add fields to your Solr schema.xml file that can be used
to contain document authorization information.  There will need to be six of these
fields, an 'allow' field for documents, parents, and shares, and a 'deny' field for
documents, parents, and shares.  For example:

  <field name="allow_token_document" type="string" indexed="true" stored="false"
    multiValued="true" required="false" default="__nosecurity__"/>
  <field name="allow_token_parent" type="string" indexed="true" stored="false"
    multiValued="true" required="false" default="__nosecurity__"/>
  <field name="allow_token_share" type="string" indexed="true" stored="false"
    multiValued="true" required="false" default="__nosecurity__"/>
  <field name="deny_token_document" type="string" indexed="true" stored="false"
    multiValued="true" required="false" default="__nosecurity__"/>
  <field name="deny_token_parent" type="string" indexed="true" stored="false"
    multiValued="true" required="false" default="__nosecurity__"/>
  <field name="deny_token_share" type="string" indexed="true" stored="false"
    multiValued="true" required="false" default="__nosecurity__"/>

The default value of "__nosecurity__" is required by this plugin, so do not forget
to include it.


Using the Query Parser Plugin
----------------------------

To set up the query parser plugin, modify your solrconfig.xml to add the query parser:

  <!-- ManifoldCF document security enforcement component -->
  <queryParser name="manifoldCFSecurity"
    class="org.apache.solr.mcf.ManifoldCFQParserPlugin">
    <str name="AuthorityServiceBaseURL">http://localhost:8345/mcf-authority-service</str>
    <int name="ConnectionPoolSize">50</int>
  </queryParser>

Hook up the search component in the solrconfig.xml file wherever you want it, e.g.:

<requestHandler name="search" class="solr.SearchHandler" default="true">
  <lst name="appends">
    <str name="fq">{!manifoldCFSecurity}</str>
  </lst>
  ...
</requestHandler>


Using the Search Component
----------------------------

To set up the search component, modify your solrconfig.xml to add the search component:

  <!-- ManifoldCF document security enforcement component -->
  <searchComponent name="manifoldCFSecurity"
    class="org.apache.solr.mcf.ManifoldCFSearchComponent">
    <str name="AuthorityServiceBaseURL">http://localhost:8345/mcf-authority-service</str>
    <int name="ConnectionPoolSize">50</int>
  </searchComponent>

Hook up the search component in the solrconfig.xml file wherever you want it, e.g.:

<requestHandler name="search" class="solr.SearchHandler" default="true">
  <arr name="last-components">
    <str>manifoldCFSecurity</str>
  </arr>
  ...
</requestHandler>


Supplying authenticated usernames and domains
----------------------------------------------

This component looks for the following parameters in the Solr request object:

AuthenticatedUserName
AuthenticatedUserDomain
AuthenticatedUserName_XX
AuthenticatedUserDomain_XX

At a minimum, AuthenticatedUserName must be present in order for the component to communicate with
the ManifoldCF Authority Service and obtain user access tokens.  In that case, the user identity will consist
of one user and one authorization domain.  If AuthenticatedUserDomain is not set, then the authorization domain
chosen will be the standard default domain, an empty string.

If you need multiple user/domain tuples for the user identity, you may pass these as parameter pairs starting with
AuthenticatedUserName_0 and AuthenticatedUserDomain_0, and counting up as high as you like.

Operation in conjunction with mod-authz-annotate
------------------------------------------------

An optional component of ManifoldCF can be built and deployed as part of Apache - mod-authz-annotate.  The
mod-authz-annotate module obtains the Kerberos principal from the Kerberos tickets present if mod-auth-kerb is used, and uses
the MCF Authority Service to look up the appropriate access tokens.  If you choose to use that architecture,
you will still need to use this Solr component to modify the user query.  All you have to do is the following:

- Make sure you do not set AuthenticatedUserName or AuthenticatedUserName_0 in the request
- Make sure the HTTP request from Apache to Solr translates all AAAGRP header values into "UserToken" parameters
   for the Solr request
