kibana Authentication Proxy
Hosts the latest kibana3 and elasticsearch behind Google OAuth2, Basic Authentication or CAS Authentication with NodeJS and Express.
- A proxy between Elasticsearch, kibana3 and user client
- Support Elasticsearch which protected by basic authentication, only kibana-authentication-proxy knows the user/passwd
- Compatible with the latest kibana3
- Enhanced authentication methods. Now support Google OAuth2, BasicAuth(multiple users supported) and CAS Authentication for the clients
- Per-user kibana index supported. now you can use index kibana-int-userA for user A and kibana-int-userB for user B
- Inspired by and based on kibana-proxy, most of the proxy libraries were written by them, thanks:)
We NO LONGER support third-party plugins such as
Head since it's hard to test and maintain
It's just a standard nodejs application, you could install it in the same server with ES, or not. Before run the following commands, please make sure you have nodejs and npm well installed.
# git clone https://github.com/fangli/kibana-authentication-proxy # cd kibana-authentication-proxy/ # git submodule init # git submodule update # npm install // You may want to update the built-in kibana3 to the latest version, just run # cd kibana && git checkout master && git pull // Then edit config.js, make sure you have everything checked in the config file // and run! # node app.js
All settings are placed in /config.js, hack it as you go.

Client authentication settings
We currently support 3 auth methods: Google OAuth2, BasicAuth and CAS, you can use one of them or all of them. it depends on the configuration you have.

client_secret: The client secret of Google OAuth2
allowed_emails: An emails list for the authorized users, should like
["email@example.com", "*@b.com", "*"]. All google users in the list will be allowed to access kibana.
Google OAuth2 needs authorized redirect URIs for your app, please add it first as below,

http://localhost:[listen_port]/auth/google/callback for local test
2. Basic Authentication
