Security Best Practices

Be sure to see our page on securing Zookeeper using SearchStax.

Removing a Solr configuration from ZooKeeper is easy to do using the zkcli script.


> ./ -zkhost <zookeeper URL> -cmd clear /configs/<configuration name>


$ zkcli.bat -zkhost <zookeeper URL> -cmd clear /configs/<configuration name>

where <zookeeper URL> is the Zookeeper Ensemble URL from your deployment details page;

SearchStax delete Solr configset

and <configuration name> is Zookeeper’s internal name for this configuration (test1).

For example:

./ -zkhost -cmd clear /configs/test1

SearchStax provides a Zookeeper API!

The SearchStax Zookeeper API provides secure, password-protected access to Zookeeper. You can list, create, read, delete, and download config files using this API.
