Configuration setup for sentry

Project description

The autoguard project enables a Sentry server to use REMOTE_USER authentication.

It’s mostly a special sentry configuration file, modified to hook authentication backends and Django middlewares to the proper RemoteUser classes.

It also uses getconf to read settings from INI configuration files.


The autoguard configuration can be tuned in a few ways:

  • Specific environment variables (starting with AUTOGUARD_)
  • Reading from /etc/autoguard/settings/*.ini
  • On a dev checkout, reading from /path/to/autoguard_checkout/local_settings.ini

All options are described in autoguard/example_settings.ini file.

Use autoguard almost as you would use Sentry. It auto-discovers the config file:

autoguard start

If using the docker image build by the attached Dockerfile. The entrypoint is the “autoguard” command:

docker run --name redis redis:latest
docker run <IMAGE_ID> --link redis:redis --volume <CONFIG_DIR>:/etc/autoguard start


Autoguard expects to run behind a HTTPS reverse proxy; that proxy MUST set the X-Forwarded-Proto HTTP header to https for HTTPS requests.

The authentication is based on X-Remote-User HTTP header, the proxy MUST clean it before passing to the application.
