QIoT setup credentials for node-red dashboard

Post by rolam » Mon May 13, 2019 3:33 am

Hey. So I installed QIoT and successfully connected an MQTT "thing" , created an application and setup node-red rules. Then under Rule > Dashboard I click the Preview button and the node-red dashboard opens (http://<ip>/qiotnode/...). Everything works fine.

But then I notice that accessing the dashboard does not request any credentials . I could not find any setting to secure the dashboard. Is there any way to configure QIoT to require authorization to access to the node-red dashboard? This is really a must, since it is accessible from the internet!

I guess my other options are to use QDashboard, but I really do not like it or run node-red and mosquitto docker containers and go from there.
Any help is appreciated, thank you.

Same issue here. nopdered docs (https://flows.nodered.org/node/node-red-dashboard) say that you can configure proper basic auth modifying a settiong.json file, but I can't find it.

I've ended up removing QIoT and just going with straight Node-Red. There is much more information regarding how to use it and it resolves the issue I'm having.
