Trusted header authentication in graylog

Hello There,

can someone help where the trusted header authentication is stored in Graylog 4, we want to know to get SSO authentication working with version 4

Please help,



Can you elaborate on what exactly you need? If you’re looking as to where to configure it in the UI, it’s under “System–>Authentication–>Authenticators”

@aaronsachs Appreciate your response,

we are having 3 docker container graylog, mongo & elasticsearch we want to use SSO authentication with graylog version 4, since it was easy in version 3.

I basically want where the information about “trusted header authentication” is stored nay config file /database or so, so that we can dig further and do some configuration to get graylog 4 working with SSO with X-FORWARDER-USER , current situation is SSO is integrated with Graylog but it is not working with our organization SSO , only default password is working at the moment.


The SSO configuration is stored in MongoDB–the only configuration that’s stored in a file (server.conf is that needed for the server to operate .
