Authentication not working with jsreport for windows

  • My prod.config.json file has the "authentication" section (with enabled: true), but when I start jsreport, there is no login screen. Is the method different on the windows executable?


  • Hi,
    yes it is supported, but it doesn't seem to work also for me. Thank you for pointing it out.
    Let me do quick investigation and come back to you


  • I identified the problem -
    I expect there will be release 1.7 ready today which will include the fix for this as well

  • I'll be on the look out for the 1.7 release. Thanks so much for the quick response!

    the fix is now part of 1.7, which is available now for download

  • I updated, but the issue is still happening. The login screen doesn't appear. I confirmed the browser tab says "jsreport 1.7.0 production".

    Here is the authentication section of my prod.config.json:

    "authentication": {
    "cookieSession": {
    "secret": "<<redacted>>"
    "admin": {
    "username": "<<redacted>>",
    "password": "<<redacted>>"
    "enabled": true

    Here is the reporter.log for when I start jsreport:

    do you have the "logout" button available?

    if that is the case just click "logout" and you will see the auth screen, for some reason if you have authentication disabled and then enable it doesn't ask you for a password and it just shows you as authenticated.

    screenshot is using jsreport executable in OSX

  • Unfortunately, no. The last option on my menu is "Enterprise".

  • administrators

    ok, i will try to run a windows VM in the following hours and try to reproduce the issue, i will post here if everything works as expected or if there is anything we need to do

  • administrators

    @jjauregui you're right, the windows executable doesn't have the fix (the fix is present in OSX and Linux versions of the executable).

    i've found the issue, so we will be fixing the windows executable in the following hours, thnks for let us know the issue!

  • administrators

    hi @jjauregui, we have fixed the windows executable, can you please download again and try it? i have tested in my windows VM and authentication is present now. thanks.

  • Works beautifully. Thank you!

  • administrators

    awesome!! 👌
