Siren Investigate JWT configuration

To enable JWT support in Siren Investigate, set the investigate_access_control.backends.searchguard.authenticator option to http-jwt, in investigate.yml, for example:

  #... existing options
      #... existing options
      authenticator: 'http-jwt'

Then restart Siren Investigate and open it in a browser; you should get a blank page and the URL should end with login.

To test JWT authentication, open your browser console (Ctrl+Shift+I on Chrome and Firefox) and call setJWTToken of the sireninvestigate object, for example:

.then(function() {
  console.log('JWT token set.');
.catch(function(error) {
  console.log('An error occurred setting the token.');

After the token is set, Siren Investigate will store it in an encrypted cookie and send it in every request to the backend; the backend will then forward the JWT token to Search Guard to authenticate the user.

After the token is set, you can switch to the desired Siren Investigate URL by changing location.href.

When the user is logged out from the main application, sessionStorage and localStorage should be cleared.

For more information on how to call setJWTToken from the parent frame, see Legacy REST datasources.
