Overview

This module will install and configure the Solr search platform.

Requirements

  • Puppet 5 or higher
  • Java 8 or higher
  • Tested with Solr 7.x and 8.x

It is recommended to use puppetlabs/java to manage the Java installation.

Usage

Beginning with Solr

Install Solr with default settings and start the service afterwards:

class { 'solr': }

Furthermore, a number of simple options are available:

class { 'solr':
    # Change version
    version => '8.2.0',

    # Allow automatic upgrades (when changing $version)
    upgrade => true,

    # Network settings
    solr_port => 8983,
    solr_host => $fqdn,

    # Use custom installation and data directories
    extract_dir => '/opt',
    install_dir => '/opt/solr-8.2.0',
    var_dir     => '/opt/solr-home',
    log_dir     => '/opt/solr-home/log',
    solr_home   => '/opt/solr-home/data',

    # Change Solr runtime parameters
    java_mem  => '-Xms2g -Xmx8g',
    solr_time => 'Europe/Berlin',
    solr_opts => [
      '-Duser.language=de',
      '-Duser.country=DE',
    ],

    # Use an alternative download location (for old versions)
    mirror => 'https://archive.apache.org/dist/lucene/solr/',
}

Test Solr

Use cURL to test if Solr is running:

curl -v http://localhost:8983/solr/

(Or use your browser for more convenience.)

Solr Cloud

This module makes it pretty easy to configure Solr Cloud:

class { 'solr':
    # Setup Solr cloud
    cloud       => true,
    zk_chroot   => 'foo',
    zk_ensemble => 'zookeeper1.example.com:2181,zookeeper2.example.com:2181,zookeeper3.example.com:2181',
    zk_timeout  => 15000,
}

It is recommended to use deric/puppet-zookeeper to manage the ZooKeeper nodes.

Custom Plugins

When using Solr Cloud, you may use this module to manage your custom plugins with Puppet (instead of using the API):

class { 'solr':
    # Setup Solr cloud
    cloud       => true,
    ...
    # Manage custom plugins
    manage_custom_plugins => true,
    custom_plugin_id      => 'solr.custom_plugins.dir',
    custom_plugins        => [
      {
        source        => 'https://my.example.com/company_solr_plugins.tgz',
        extract       => true,
        creates       => 'company-search-enhancer-1.0.jar',
        checksum_type => 'md5',
        checksum      => 'a5d3ae0781765a702ca274191a4d7c97',
      },
      {
        source        => 'https://my.example.com/more_solr_plugins.tgz',
        extract       => true,
        creates       => 'my-private-plugin-2.0.jar',
        checksum_type => 'md5',
        checksum      => '7a4e95b26ac41250f8a65c4bf4dd1d25',
      }
    ]
}

As you can see, the $custom_plugins parameter expects options in a format that is compatible with voxpupuli/archive.

All custom plugins will automatically be installed and Solr will then be restarted. A new environment variable is added to Solr's startup options which points to the custom plugins directory. The name of this variable can be adjusted by altering the $custom_plugin_id parameter.

Note that you need to reference the $custom_plugin_id environment variable in your configuration in order to actually load the custom plugins in your Solr Core:

  <config>
    <lib dir="${solr.custom_plugins.dir}" />
    ...
  </config>
