You can enforce authentication of users who share your databases by running Redisinsight with variables RIAUTHPROMPT, RIAUTHTIMER, and RILOGLEVEL. For more information on variables, see Configure RedisInsight.

By setting the variables, enforce the prompt for username and password each time the database is opened and at a specific time interval while users work with the database. You can maintain multiple tabs with the same database without having to enter username and password in each one.

  • For Windows and Linux:
docker run -p 8001:8001-e RIAUTHPROMPT=5 -e RIAUTHTIMER=1 redislabs/redisinsight # 5 minutes idle timer 
  • For Mac:
docker run -p 8001:8001-e RIAUTHPROMPT=5 -e RIAUTHTIMER=1 redislabs/redisinsight # 5 minutes idle timer 

Where:

  • RIAUTHPROMPT enables authentication prompt when opening instances and when the user is idle
  • RIAUTHTIMER sets user idle timer value in minutes
  • RILOGLEVEL logs to console/file
Note:
Do not store username and password in the browser.
