Kibana - Disable gzip compression


(Nathan Zugsay) #1

We are trying to use IIS ARR to do reverse proxy of kibana to add some level of security. We are trying to disable content compression (content-encoding: gzip) to allow us to implement a work around. I see that in hapi that is configured under connection properties but I don't see where I could override the default value of compression:true. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hey @locguero, Kibana/Hapi should be choosing whether to use content compression based on the Accept-Encoding HTTP header have you all tried not including that header for the requests between the reverse proxy and kibana itself?

Thank you Brandon. We were able to get around this issue. We were trying to use a different base path in the proxy and that was causing issues and thus the need for changing compression. We decided to use the same base url and just a different port on the proxy. We are good now. Thank you.
