Previously with my ELK stack solution I had Kibana secured using an Nginx reverse proxy, configured with basic htpasswd authentication.
Recently I have been experimenting with the Shield plugin for both Elasticsearch and Kibana - mostly for some of the extra features it provides for Kibana and the authentication it provides for elasticsearch. I am aware that without a license the functionality is very limited, but I don't think I need this 'extra' functionality anyway.
Is it possible to configure shield with Nginx? When I try to access kibana as I did before it will not function correctly, due to the fact that there is now shield authentication which I presume is blocking it somehow.
