Noble Paul commented on SOLR-10814:
-----------------------------------

bq.Expose short userName via AuthorizationContext. This will allow new plugin 
implementations to work without any special configuration.

Tell me , how will the new plugin implementation know whether to use a short 
name or a long name? 

Anyway, I personally am ambivalent about how third party plugins are written. 

The flag anyway lets the user switch between long and short name easily. 
{{RuleBasedAuthorizationPlugin}} does not have to be modified.

> Solr allows configuring roles to control user access to the system. This is 
> accomplished through rule-based permission definitions which are assigned to 
> users.
> The authorization framework in Solr passes the information about the request 
> (to be authorized) using an instance of AuthorizationContext class. Currently 
> the only way to extract authenticated user is via getUserPrincipal() method 
> which returns an instance of java.security.Principal class. The 
> RuleBasedAuthorizationPlugin implementation invokes getName() method on the 
> Principal instance to fetch the list of associated roles.

> In case of basic authentication mechanism, the principal is the userName. 
> Hence it works fine. But in case of kerberos authentication, the user 
> principal also contains the RELM information e.g. instead of foo, it would 
> return f...@example.com. This means if the user changes the authentication 
> mechanism, he would also need to change the user-role mapping in 
> authorization section to use f...@example.com instead of foo. This is not 
> good from usability perspective.
