Search Guard is installed, everything is great, except:
I have a VRRP health check for Kibana which is using curl to hit https://kibana/api/status to check for ‘green’, in case we need to fail over to another Kibana node.
The problem is, since installing Search Guard and the Kibana plugin I’m hitting /searchguard/login?nextUrl=%2Fapi%2Fstatus instead.
I’ve passed basic auth credentials with the check but that doesn’t work. Any way I can get around this? Or is it possible to expose the status API without using auth?
