How to secure Druid Console with authentication?

Thanks for the awesome software.

Started using it for a week and it is really amazing.

I have few queries on this.

How to secure the druid console?

i.e http://ip-address:8090/console.html is open to all.

Is there any way to add authentication for this ?

Thanks.

Hey Shrinivasan,

Most people handle this by firewalling off the entire Druid cluster to only “trusted” access, and implementing an authenticating proxy to handle any other access. This applies both to Druid management APIs like the console, and Druid query APIs.

There is also an experimental auth feature built directly into Druid, which we may one day promote to a fully supported feature. If interested you should be able to find some info about that if you search the forums.
