Enable RBAC in Kong Manager
Enable role-based access control (RBAC) to secure Kong Manager.
When RBAC is enabled, Kong Manager will no longer be publicly accessible, and users will need to log in to Kong Manager.
To enable RBAC, you will need the initial KONG_PASSWORD that was used when you first installed Kong Gateway and ran migrations. This is also the default password for the Super Admin, and will be required once RBAC is on.
Outside of this guide, you will likely want to modify these settings differently, depending on your installation. You can read more about these settings here: Basic Auth for Kong Manager.
