SearchStax Help Center

The SearchStax Help Center Frequently Asked Questions page includes FAQs about SearchStax Managed Search, our hosted Apache Solr Cloud service.

Does SearchStax support IP filtering?

Zookeemer ensembles absolutely must be secured by IP Filtering. Otherwise, they are vulnerable to hacking. The SearchStax Managed Search service enforces this requirement. See How can I secure Zookeeper?

Solr nodes and clusters should be secured with IP Filtering and Solr Basic Auth. There are applications where Solr must respond to unpredictable IPs, however, so SearchStax does not enforce IP Filtering on Solr nodes as long as Basic Auth is in place.

For deployments in Virtual Private Clouds, our engineers configure the IP filters on your behalf.
