Capturing DSE Search HTTP Requests

DataStax Enterprise Search nodes support queries through the Apache Solr™ HTTP API. To log HTTP requests, additional configuration is required on each search node. In the web.xml uncomment the filter-mapping element.


  1. Locate the Solr web.xml file. The location of this file depends on the type of installation:

    • Package installations: /usr/share/dse/solr/web/solr/WEB-INF/web.xml

    • Tarball installations: <installation_location>/resources/solr/web/solr/WEB-INF/web.xml

  2. On all DSE Search nodes, uncomment the filter-mapping element in the web.xml file.


Here is an example of the data audit log of a Solr query:
