PKI auth for kibana - is it supported?


Hello. I would like to set Kibana to use PKI auth instead of username/password. Following setting does not work:

elasticsearch.ssl.certificate: /app/volumes/config/certs/client.crt
elasticsearch.ssl.key: /app/volumes/config/certs/client.key

There are a lot of following messsages in kibana log:

...Status changed from uninitialized to red - Authentication Exception

Should this setting work? Is the PKI auth supported ... or will it be supported?

PKI isn't well supported in 5.x. You may be running into an issue where the default username/password get sent to ES even when they're not defined in kibana.yml. I believe this should be fixed in 6.0. beta1 just shipped, so you could test it out if you like.
