Is there a way to disable the web console of couchbase server?


#1

Hi there, I would like to disable the web console of the Couchbase server, not only the console on port 8091 but totally the whole console. Any setting can be changed to reach this?

Hi Yinlei,

Thank you for your feedback.

Couple of questions:

  1. What version of Couchbase Server are you using?
  2. Can you please elaborate on what you mean by “Not only the console on port 8091, but totally the whole console”?

Thank you,

Hi Don,

Thank you for the response, for your questions:

  1. Couchbase version which I am now using is 4.5.0
  2. As you know, after configuring ssl certificate, I can disable the web console on http connection which is using port 8091 and then enable https connection with 18091, right? Actually I want to disable the web console totally, means user cannot access couchbase web console anyway, but just use CLI tools or REST to manage the server and buckets… could you please clarify it this possible?

Regards,
Yinlei Hou

Hi There ,

I think you can do this by placing some firewall policy on the hostname(couchbase servers) and port which will enable you to grant access to only those users who should access the webconsole or you may totally block it for all .Thankyou
