      Description

      Solr needs a well defined plugin point to implement audit logging functionality, which is independent from whatever AuthenticationPlugin or AuthorizationPlugin are in use at the time.

      It seems reasonable to introduce a new plugin type AuditLoggerPlugin. It could be configured in solr.xml or it could be a third type of plugin defined in security.json, i.e.

      {
        "authentication" : { "class" : ... },
        "authorization" : { "class" : ... },
        "auditlogging" : { "class""x.y.MyAuditLogger", ... }
      }
      

      We could then instrument SolrDispatchFilter to the audit plugin with an AuditEvent at important points such as successful authentication:

      auditLoggerPlugin.audit(new SolrAuditEvent(EventType.AUTHENTICATED, request)); 
      

       We will mark the impl as @lucene.experimental in the first release to let it settle as people write their own plugin implementations.
