Make the Kibana dashboard public

NOTE: For security reasons, we do not recommend disabling authentication.

By default, you will be prompted for a username and password every time you access the Kibana dashboard. This can create problems if, for example, you wish to embed Kibana data in other pages. To disable the authentication prompt, follow these steps:

  • Edit the Apache configuration file at /opt/bitnami/elasticsearch/apache-conf/elasticsearch.conf and remove the LocationMatch section.

  • Restart Apache by running the command below:

    $ sudo /opt/bitnami/ctlscript.sh restart apache
