Errors when Kibana is fronted by an nginx reverse proxy


(Mark Vovchuk) #1

Hi, all

Having a weird one, and not able to specifically trace it to an nginx issue, though I'm not an expert there.

Getting this error:

2017/07/20 19:16:44 [crit] 21618#0: *3 open() "/etc/nginx/client_body_temp/0000000001" failed (13: Permission denied), client: 10.10.0.200, server: kibana1.region1.ldap1.testdomain.local, request: "POST /elasticsearch/_msearch HTTP/1.1", host: "kibana.region1.ldap1.testdomain.local", referrer: "https://kibana.region1.ldap1.testdomain.local/app/kibana"

2017/07/20 19:16:44 [error] 21618#0: *3 open() "/etc/nginx/html/50x.html" failed (13: Permission denied), client: 10.10.0.200, server: kibana1.region1.ldap1.testdomain.local, request: "POST /elasticsearch/_msearch HTTP/1.1", host: "kibana.region1.ldap1.testdomain.local", referrer: "https://kibana.region1.ldap1.testdomain.local/app/kibana"

This is a 1.9.9 build of nginx build with Kibana 5.3.0-1

This issue is not a bug. I found the problem, and it was rather ridiculous and a pain to track down.

The build scripts for the nginx front end neglected a permission on /etc/nginx.

This one's in the bag.

Same issue as Visualization/Authorization Error when using dashboards with many visualizations

My apologies
