What Grafana version are you using?


What OS are you running grafana on?

Official Docker image on Kubernetes

What did you do?

Set environment variable GF_AUTH_OAUTH_AUTO_LOGIN to true.

What was the expected result?

  • Grafana redirects to our oauth provider instead of the login page.
  • Admin settings panel shows true for the variable auth -> oauth_auto_login

What happened instead?

  • Grafana still shows login page
  • Admin settings panel shows false

Further information

We are configuring all other settings with environment variables as well and it works, e.g. for SMTP from address:

~ $ kubectl exec -it grafana-55c76cbf79-lhj6r -- sh -c 'echo $GF_SMTP_FROM_ADDRESS'
~ $ kubectl exec -it grafana-55c76cbf79-lhj6r -- sh -c 'echo $GF_AUTH_OAUTH_AUTO_LOGIN'

Judging from the code in #12029 I don't see a reason why this would not work (because it's using the standard settings constructor) and no reason why the code should switch the setting to false due to side conditions, so I would expect that it shows true under any circumstances.

Thanks for reporting this, classic mistake on our end, forgot to add this setting to the defaults file
