Miscellaneous

Here are the main customizable options in Authelia.

Host & Port

host: 0.0.0.0
port: 9091

host

type: string

default: 0.0.0.0

required: no

Defines the address to listen on. See also port. Should typically be 0.0.0.0 or 127.0.0.1, the former for containerized environments and the later for daemonized environments like init.d and systemd.

Note: If utilising an IPv6 literal address it must be enclosed by square brackets and quoted:

host: "[fd00:1111:2222:3333::1]"

port

type: integer

default: 9091

required: no

Defines the port to listen on. See also host.

TLS

Authelia’s port typically listens for plain unencrypted connections. This is by design as most environments allow to security on lower areas of the OSI model. However it required, if you specify both of the tls options the port will listen for TLS connections.

tls_key: /config/ssl/key.pem
tls_cert: /config/ssl/cert.pem

tls_key

type: string (path)

default: “”

required: situational

The path to the private key for TLS connections. Must be in DER base64/PEM format.

tls_cert

type: string (path)

default: “”

required: situational

The path to the public certificate for TLS connections. Must be in DER base64/PEM format.

certificates_directory

This option defines the location of additional certificates to load into the trust chain specifically for Authelia. This currently affects both the SMTP notifier and the LDAP authentication backend. The certificates should all be in the PEM format and end with the extension .pem, .crt, or .cer. You can either add the individual certificates public key or the CA public key which signed them (don’t add the private key).

certificates_directory: /config/certs/

jwt_secret

type: string

default: “”

required: yes

Defines the secret used to craft JWT tokens leveraged by the identity verification process. This can also be defined using a secret.

jwt_secret: v3ry_important_s3cr3t

default_redirection_url

type: string

default: “”

required: no

The default redirection URL is the URL where users are redirected when Authelia cannot detect the target URL where the user was heading.

In a normal authentication workflow, a user tries to access a website and she gets redirected to the sign-in portal in order to authenticate. Since the user initially targeted a website, the portal knows where the user was heading and can redirect her after the authentication process. However, when a user visits the sign in portal directly, the portal considers the targeted website is the portal. In that case and if the default redirection URL is configured, the user is redirected to that URL. If not defined, the user is not redirected after authentication.

default_redirection_url: https://home.example.com:8080/
