Shield-LDAP for Kibana

security

(maitreya) #1

Hello,

I have Elasticsearch, Kibana, LDAP in my local setup. I have configured LDAP with Elasticsearch and it's working fine. I then followed this document: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/shield/current/kibana.html

I don't have an SSL certificate setting since, I'm doing it on my local setup. So, I added,

shield.skipSslCheck: true
in kibana.yml. Despite adding this, I'm getting the below error:

Then, I saw one of Jaymode's post: Problem shield - kibana

Is there any way to make Kibana work without an SSL configuration?

Hi there, Shield requires SSL. You should be able to use our dev certs if you're just using Kibana locally: https://github.com/elastic/kibana/tree/master/test/dev_certs

Please let me know if this helps!

Thanks,
CJ
