Rerouting to kiosk mode via nginx

Hi, as by the title, it’s a while that I’m trying to use nginx to reroute the url adding “&refresh=2s&kiosk”.
Pratically, I just need to append “&refresh=2s&kiosk” at the end of the url.
But I’m not able to do it in any way, I think I have done hundreds of different tests, but nothing.
Thanks so much

Hi @donatod,

Thanks for opening this post.

Can you please provide the steps of reproduction so that the community can also try to reproduce it on a test machine?


Ok. I use grafana behind ngnix, with no problem. Everithing works well.
Now I just would like that when I reach grafana, nginx add “&refresh=2s&kiosk” at the end of the url so that I can automatically login as kiosk mode.

If I try directly typing the url with “&refresh=2s&kiosk” at the end, it works great. Even if I’m not login, after do it I’m redirect to the dashboard in kiosk mode as I want.
But I’m not able to do the same via nginix, it always redirect me to the normal URL, no kiosk mode

  • grafana.ini
http_port = 2901
domain = [](
root_url = %(protocol)s://%(domain)s:%(http_port)s/mygraf/
serve_from_sub_path = true
  • nginx
location /mygraf/ {
#rewrite ^(.<em>)$ $1?kiosk last;
#rewrite ^(.</em>)v61IJiO7z(.*)$ $1/v61IJiO7z/$2?kiosk last;
proxy_pass http://localhost:50001/;
proxy_read_timeout 90;
proxy_ssl_session_reuse on;
proxy_http_version 1.1;
proxy_cache_bypass $http_upgrade;
proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
proxy_set_header Connection “upgrade”;
proxy_set_header Host $host;
proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Host $host;
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Port $server_port;
access_log /var/log/nginx/grf_res.access.log;
error_log /var/log/nginx/grf_res.error.log;

I made the change you suggest, but nothing. It still doesn’t work :frowning:

It will be interesting to see the nginx logs along with Grafana logs. That way there is more better chance to know what might be the issue.
