Original Issue Requirement
Currently in order to disable Solr <--> Alfresco communication a complex, error-prone and risky (involves patching the web.xml of both Alfresco and Solr) is required.
This is unofficially documented at:
Since most customer disable SSL anyway (almost all of them in Dev or Test environment) It would be very beneficial to enhance the Solr <--> Alfresco authentication mechanism to simply honor the configuration properties found respectively in alfresco-global.properties and solrcore.properties.
In other words we would like that:
- simply setting solr.secureComms=none in alfresco-global.properties would disable Alfresco --> Solr SSL communication
- simply setting alfresco.secureComms=none in solrcore.properties would disable Solr --> Alfresco SSL communication
This is very intuitive and doesn't not require core webapp changes.
