A laravel microservice for creating/updating/deleting resource items within a connected solr core.

This service provides an json api (1.0) standardize endpoint to communicate with an Apache Solr instance.


We support item creation, update and deletion, for single and multiple items at once. We use the json api 1.0 standard definition for transferring data.

Each item can have various attributes, which all will be stored on the solr core configured.

The id attribute is special. Without an id attribute solr wil give the item an id. If you specify one (no matter where: as id or within the attributes) the solr core uses the given id.


Once configured you can test the service via command:

php artisan test:payload '{"id":"some-id"}' [expected-fields]

It will send the json object given as first argument to the solr.
If an id is included in the payload then the command verifies that the solr returns a document with the given id.
expected-fields is an optional comma-separated list. When given then the fields listed here are compared between the response from solr and the payload.


You have to configure various service options. Each of them are environment variables.


We provide sentry as bug/log out-of-the-box. You just have to set the SENTRY_DSN with your sentry dsn.

Secure Token

SERVICE_SECURE_TOKEN has to be configured to verify token access based communication. This token value has to be on every single request to the api as header Authorization.

Example: Authorization Token wfeljhf

The request is only valid when you configured the service with SERVICE_SECURE_TOKEN=wfeljhf in your environment.


CACHE_DRIVER should not be set or changed to other value than its default redis. Maybe file could be used, but we suggest keeping it redis.

Apache Solr

SOLR_HOST has to be configured with your host.

SOLR_PORT has to be the port it listens to. It defaults to 9893.

SOLR_PATH has to be the path for the solr it listens on. It defaults to /solr/.

SOLR_CORE has to be the core name this service runs on. It defaults to default.

SOLR_USERNAME has to be the username to access this service.

SOLR_PASSWORD has to be the password to access this service.

SOLR_TIMEOUT has to be the timeout for the internal http client. It defaults to 30.

Validation Rules

The service is completely environment-driven for the validation rules.

Generic validation rules

You can set up validation rules for every request.

GENERIC_VALIDATION_RULE_ followed by the attribute name to validate this for every request, ignoring existance of attribute.

Example GENERIC_VALIDATION_RULE_ID with the value sometimes|numeric means that everytime an id is given, it has to be numeric.

Input validation rules

You can set up validation rules for every attribute found in the input request.

INPUT_VALIDATION_RULE_ followed by the attribute name to validate this for every request an attribute named like defined is present.

Example INPUT_VALIDATION_RULE_SOURCE with the value required|in:feed,crawler,page means a given source attribute has to be one of the given values.

Local Environment

Your local environment will be available here.

We (ipunkt) provide a package called rancherize for hosting our web stacks in a rancher environment with various docker images. For local development you can use rancherize command in the following way.

You need locally docker daemon installed.

Copy following content in a rancherize.json file in your project root:

Create a docker network once with docker network create indexer-service.

Starting with vendor/bin/rancherize start local and stopping with vendor/bin/rancherize stop local.

Artisan inside docker

docker exec -it laravelindexerservice_PHP-FPM-LaravelIndexerService_1 php /var/www/app/artisan

Solr on local development

Just exec

$> docker run --network indexer-service --name my_solr -d -p 8983:8983 -t solr

And optional create a core:

$> docker exec -it --user=solr my_solr bin/solr create_core -c gettingstarted

Afterwards stop and remove the container:

$> docker stop my_solr
$> docker rm my_solr
