      Description

      It's possible to use the anonymous_user_id to set different anonymous users for different siteaccesses so each siteaccess will have a different set of permissions for the anonymous users.

      To see how this is configured:

      $ app/console config:dump-reference ezpublish --env=dev
      
      ezpublish:
        system:
          siteaccess_name:
            # The ID of the user used for everyone who is not logged in.
            anonymous_user_id:  ~ # Example: 10
      

      eZ Publish has a varnish.vcl file where you can set the X-User-Hash thta will be used to detect and handle anonymous users cache:

      if (req.http.Cookie !~ "eZSESSID" && !req.http.authorization) {
          set req.http.X-User-Hash = "38015b703d82206ebc01d17a39c727e5";
      }
      

      Now, if you use anonymous_user_id to configure multiple anonymous users, how the X-User-Hash should be configured so Varnish will work nicely?

      It's important to document this.
