InfluxDB Error: Forbidden

Hi, looking for some assistance please.

I am using Grafana, InfluxDB behind Nginx as a reverse proxy.
Generally everything works fine - except for every now and then randomly, all the graphs display “InfluxDB Error: Forbidden”

Influx DB Forbidden

I cannot see anything that stands out in the Grafana, InfluxDB or Nginx logs.

When the error is clicked on - the following error is displayed :

403 Forbidden

403 Forbidden


nginx

Object

message:“InfluxDB Error: Forbidden”

data:Object

message:" 403 Forbidden

403 Forbidden

error:“Forbidden”

response:" 403 Forbidden

403 Forbidden


nginx "

config:Object

method:“GET”

url:“api/datasources/proxy/1/query”

params:Object

data:null

precision:“ms”

inspect:Object

paramSerializer:serializeParams(e){…}

headers:Object

retry:0

hideFromInspector:false

If anyone has experienced this same error - please kindly advise where I can find out what is causing this?

Kind regards,

Liam

maybe too many requests to Influx are getting you rate limited?

Hi,

Thanks for the response.

I managed to work out what it was - I was using round robin DNS to balance and make the site available across two physical sites.

One site had a slightly different ModSec profile, so when requests went via that particular WAF, the 403 errors occurred.

Configs mirrored, and now the solution is fully functional.

Kind regards,

Liam
