Create local users


Is it possible to create local users to view the kibana reporting dashboard? The default is insight and there doesn't appear to be an option within the GUI to create a new user. Can it be done via the Linux shell?

Any RADIUS support?

Although not officially tested or supported, it is possible to add additional users for access to the dashboards.  Keep in mind, this is different than adding users to the Linux OS (which must be done beforehand), it is adding a user to the Web Server credential file:

sudo sh -c "echo -n 'sammy:' >> /etc/nginx/.htpasswd"

sudo sh -c "openssl passwd -apr1 >> /etc/nginx/.htpasswd"

sudo service nginx restart

We have not tested Third Party authentication with Insight, but it can be configured through the Capture Engine Manager which is installed with Omnipeek. However, this will not allow access to the dashboards, just the Insight when logging in with Omnipeek
