I read the configuration with Grafanas
auth.proxy and the Apache
<Proxy *> configuration, but it seems that this isn’t what I want, and I’m not able to change the Apache configuration.
Is there a way that the Grafana logon prompt simply accepts the Apache credentials?
So, if a user navigates to Grafana, the logon prompt of Grafana is shown.
The user enters the credentials from Apache and is authenticated in Grafana.
Alternatively, I would use the Linux operating system users to logon with Grafana.
I want to prevent users to manage new credentials, as all of them already exists in Apache and OS.
Background is, my Grafana installation is a plugin of a special Debian distribution for Smart Homes. Therefore, there will be 5000+ installations of this Grafana plugin, and every user is Admin on his installation. Linux and Apache credentials are provided by the Debian distribution. “As a plugin” I’m not permitted to extend the Apache config. I want to provide a way to get the users “in” without further credentials, they should use what the Debian distribution provides.
