Remove password prompt from sensu-dashboard


#1

I’ve been digging through the documentation and doing some local tests and I haven’t figured out a way yet to disable the username/password prompt for the dashboard. Is there a way to disable the prompt (we have a reverse proxy in front of the dashboard that takes care of the auth)?


#2

You could have the reverse proxy set the header.

#3

What headers is the dashboard expecting? Standard “Basic:” ?

You can disable auth on the sensu dashboard by removing the user + password configuration options.

Yes, it is expecting basic auth. I do the same thing that you do in my environment, except I leave the auth on with a static system password, and use apache for ssl+ldap, and proxy after setting the basic auth header on the backend. (base64 user:password)
