Now that Solr supports Authentication plugins, the missing piece is to be allowed access from Admin UI when authentication is enabled. For this we need
- Some plumbing in Admin UI that allows the UI to detect 401 responses and redirect to login page
- Possibility to have multiple login pages depending on auth method and redirect to the correct one
- AngularJS HTTP interceptors to add correct HTTP headers on all requests when user is logged in
This issue should aim to implement some of the plumbing mentioned above, and make it work with Basic Auth.
