Kiln’s admin and editorial area

Kiln provides a URL space, under /admin/, for administrative and editorial tasks and resources. These may include indexing documents into the Solr search engine, generating OAI-PMH records, and creating and harvesting RDF triples into Sesame.

sitemaps/admin.xmap specifies the applicable pipelines.

Adding authentication

The simplest approach to password protecting the admin area is to make use of HTTP Authentication. The configuration for this depends on which web server is sitting in front of Kiln — it may be Apache Tomcat, Apache HTTPD, NGinix or something else — and its documentation should be consulted.
