Enable HTTP authentication for the Parse Dashboard

To enable basic HTTP authentication for the Parse Dashboard, please follow the steps below:

  • Stop the Parse server:

      $ sudo /opt/bitnami/ stop parse
      $ sudo /opt/bitnami/ stop parse-dashboard
  • Edit the script at */opt/bitnami/parse-dashboard

    $ cd /opt/bitnami/parse-dashboard
    $ vim server.js
  • Edit the dashboard variable and add a new object following the example below:

    var dashboard = new ParseDashboard({
        apps: [
        users: [
                user: 'USERNAME',
                pass: 'PASSWORD'

    Remember to replace the USERNAME and PASSWORD placeholders with the desired access credentials, and ensure that there are no syntax errors, such as missing commas.

  • Restart the Parse server:

      $ sudo /opt/bitnami/ restart parse
      $ sudo /opt/bitnami/ restart parse-dashboard
