I tried to embed Kibana into a webpage but was unable to login as they kept bringing me back to the login page.
So I decided to take a different approach and allow user to log in anonymously.
I create an API-Key and link a newly created role to the api-key. However, when I try to login anonymously, I received this error
This is how I create my api-key in dev tools
"tags": ["dev", "staging"]
This is the privileges I gave to my newly created role
And in my
file I added the following xpack code.
I'm sorry if this is an easy fix. I am still new and learning Kibana. Any advice is greatly appreciated! Thank you for your time!
Docs recommend to change
sameSiteCookies policy and use
auth_provider_hint for this approach
Have you tried this?
Hello @dosant sorry I forgot to add that I did use
auth_provider_hint in my iFrame code.
<iframe src="http://localhost:5601/app/dashboards?auth_provider_hint=anonymous1#/view/e1eb4b30-3ba1-11ec-818d-cba5e7ef064e?embed=true&_g=(...)" height="600" width="800"></iframe>
and when I tried to use
sameSiteCookies by adding
xpack.security.sameSiteCookies: "None" in my
kibana.yml, I received this error instead
This is the error I saw in my console
[error][server][Kibana][http] Error: "SameSite: None" requires Secure connection at validateOptions
[warning][process] PromiseRejectionHandledWarning: Promise rejection was handled asynchronously (rejection id: 2)
Error: Internal Server Error at HapiResponseAdapter.toInternalError
I Have the same error ,did you solve it?
Hello @yanwencheng , I went with a different approach. Instead of giving an API key the privilege role (in my case the role is called
anonymous-role), I gave the
anonymous-role to a newly created user and used the following code instead;
username: "[insert username here]"
password: "[insert password here]"
You can refer to my post here regarding it here
You mean that you only need to configure kibana.yml, I see the official documentation needs to add Elasticsearch.yml
I got a new error again
Error: [security_exception: [security_exception] Reason: unable to authenticate user [anonymousUser1] for REST request [/_security/_authenticate]]: unable to authenticate user [anonymousUser1] for REST request [/_security/_authenticate]

that's what I did last time but I got the same error. So I add the roles to a newly created user and am able to log in anonymously using my iFrame code.
I set a user password of 888888 on kibana page, and in kibana YML is configured as
Kibana Do you need to configure other YML? I still have this error
Thank you very much. After using STL, iframe can be embedded easily。
