Connect to OpenSearch DB with basic auth

Answered
Graham McCulloch asked on September 23, 2022

Our Elastic data is in an OpenSearch DB, protected by basic authentication. I’m trying to connect like this but Flexmonster seems to be stripping out the basic auth username and password before sending the request.

report={{
  dataSource: {
    type: ‘elasticsearch’,
    node: ‘https://<username>:<password>@<opensearch-id>.us-east-2.es.amazonaws.com’,
    index: ‘<my-index>’
  }
}}

How can I connect to a data source that requires basic authentication?

Actually – got it working! I hadn’t spotted the requestHeaders option.
