Kibana - Liveness probe / health check


(Sebastien Pereira) #1

Hi,

Does RoR for Kibana provides a way to check kibana health?

There is a Kibana deployed on k8s with a liveness probe, using httpGet/https with basic auth httpHeaders. It allows to check kibana is up and running and the authentication is ok.

With RoR kibana plugin it seems basic auth no more works: kibana keeps redirecting to the login page. I could not find a way to use httpPost to log in with k8s livenessProbe, so the current workaround consist on hitting app/kibana and checking a 302 response code…

Hi @seb-pereira,

Yes we have a solution for this. It’s called whitelist paths. See the documentation, in the load balancers section.
