So we have nginx reverse proxying to elasticsearch set up in amazon aws VPC. so far things are working as expected. I want to add some basic http authentication as I have done this many times in the past. However this time after I get the login screen I am seeing this error in the nginx logs. Http 403 error
"POST /es_admin/.kibana/index-pattern/_search?stored_fields= HTTP/1.1" 403
authentication does work as I do get the Kibana Interface ( we are running kibana on the ec2 instance ) just no data.
