Steps for configuring SAML for kibana cloud


(Nikhil) #1

I'm using kibana cloud and want to enable the SSO using the SAML, the use case is, A dashboard designed with kibana, is embedded in another website, but when I access the website, the iFrame containing the Kibana Dashboard, asks for user credentials every time.
After some research I have figured out, if I set up the SAML, my problem will be resolved,
but I was unable to find out where should I add the Metadata file generated from the IDP.

I'm using Kibana 6.4.2 trail version on cloud.

Hi @nikhil.bokil,

SAML is not currently supported on the Elastic Cloud. As far as embedding a dashboard in another website, you could put a proxy in front of Kibana, and have this proxy forward credentials to Kibana for authentication.

Here's an example NGINX configuration that you could use as a starting point: Auto-authenticating to iframe-embedded Kibana dashboard
