VariableEMERGENCY_USERS
DescriptionEnables emergency users in case of issues with identity provider
Defaultfalse

If there are issues with the identity provider that Humio is configured to use, then you might not be able to log in to Humio. To mitigate this, Humio provides emergency users that can be created locally within the Humio cluster.

To enable emergency users, this environment variable must be set to true:

ini files
EMERGENCY_USERS=true

This enables the emergency API endpoint found at /api/v1/emergency. This API can be used by any user with root access on the Humio instance to create and manage emergency users.
