How to make anonymous work for Kibana with shield?


#1

I set the anonymous by following the page https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/shield/current/anonymous-access.html, and it did work with the elasticsearch queries.
However, when I access the Kibana, it still asks for a username and password, how to get through that?

Sorry, anonymous access is not currently available in Kibana

Thanks~!
I am embedding the Kibana visualization into another Web application using iframe for a demo purpose, is there a way to pass in the user name and password (ugly) into the URL?

I don't believe that's available yet, but we are working to add support for basic authentication
