Plain-Text Headers

Perhaps you already have a homegrown solution that will authenticate your users, like an Apache or Nginx module. ConsoleMe can be configured to extract a user and their groups from plain text headers provided by these modules.

These headers are sensitive, and you'll need to ensure the web server that you have in front of ConsoleMe drops these headers if the user passes them with their request

ConsoleMe expects the groups header to be a comma separated list of the user's groups.

We have an example configuration here.

  get_groups_by_header: true
  get_user_by_header: true
  groups_header_name: group_header
  user_header_name: user_header
