Kibana Sticky Session with memcahed or any other storage?

Hi Team,

···
  • Search Guard and Elasticsearch version - 6.2.4

  • Installed and used enterprise modules, if any (Enterprise modules - Multi tenancy (kibana), Proxy Auth)

  • JVM version and operating system version - Open JDK 8 (Ubuntu Machines)


Currently I have a cluster for Kibana Instance (2 nodes) with Proxy authentication( IDP-> Apache (with Mod Shib) -> Kibana) . Is there any option where I can store user sessions in memcache and Kibana can use this if the service is rebooted or traffic routed to second instance.

For any further information please do let me know.

Thanks,

Yash

There is no session state stored on Kibana. The session information is stored in an encrypted cookie. So if your traffic is always routed via the proxy, there should be no issue with session stickiness.

Please let me know if I misunderstood your question somehow.

Thanks Jochen for your prompt response. Session cookie are better option which reduces the effort to maintain a session storage.
