[Kibana] Authenticate via Radius

Hi there,

is it possible to authenticate on kibana through radius authentication? If possible, how?

My Version of Kibana is 7.9.

Best Regards


Hi @Ayakashi97 - Welcome to our community forum!

Elasticsearch does not integrate/support Radius authentication out-of-the-box.

What you could explore is implementing a custom realm. You can also refer to How to Develop Your Own Security Extensions and Custom Realms for Elasticsearch for an example of such implementation.

I hope that helps!


Hi @ropc, thank you :slight_smile:

will look into the links you provided.

Are there any plans to implement radius?

You're welcome @Ayakashi97 - We have had such request from other customers - but ultimately it depends on how much "traction" such feature gets. Our Elasticsearch product team usually ascertains if such feature would be implemented or not. It is probably best if you open a feature request in the Elasticsearch github repository.

For now, the best workaround is the implementation of the custom realm. Alternatively, you could consult the list of realms currently supported in Elasticsearch.
