Django app to add an instance's public IP to ALLOWED_HOSTS for Elastic Beanstalk's health check system

Project description


By default, Elastic Beanstalk's health check system uses the public IP of each load balanced instance as the request's host header when making a request. Unless added to ALLOWED_HOSTS, this causes Django to return a 400 Bad Request and a failed health check.

This app dynamically adds your instance's public IP address to Django's ALLOWED_HOSTS setting to permit health checks to succeed.

Note this only adds the host to settings - the health check system still requires / to return 200 OK, unless configured differently in EB.

Version 2.0.0 and higher supports IMDSv2. If you are using v1 and cannot upgrade, use version 1 of this library instead (pip install django-ebhealthcheck<2.0.0).


Simply add ebhealthcheck.apps.EBHealthCheckConfig to your INSTALLED_APPS:
