UI to edit Sentry privileges of Solr collections

Published on 02 June 2016 in - 1 minute read - Last modified on 06 March 2021 - Read in jp

The Sentry app now let's you edit Solr Collection privileges. It previously only support editing permissions of the Hive Tables.

It becomes now much easier to control the authorization of all your Solr indexes (until now privileges had to be set through a flat file with a server restart) and make sure that the powerful Dynamic Search Dashboards can be accessed securely by only certain group of users.

Here is a video demoing how to configure the access to your Solr data:

Below are screenshots of the main features of the app:


Listing of Solr collections and configs with their related privileges


Listing of all the roles and their privileges. Possibility to filter by groups.


Apply privilege to all the collections or configs with *


End user error when querying a collection without the QUERY privilege


End user error when modifying a record without the UPDATE privilege



We hope that you like the ease of use and security, and feel free to send feedback on the hue-user list or @gethue!
