Calibre SSO

Calibre Single Sign On with Auth Proxy


Calibre added support to Auth via header in v0.6.5. You need to set the Calibre settings in the Admin Configuration.

The Reverse Proxy Header Name should be the header you set in your reverse proxy config.

You will need to update your calibre.conf file as documented on the Proxy Auth SSO page.

Here is an example calibre.conf file for a subdomain of

location /calibre {
        proxy_bind              $server_addr;
        proxy_pass    ;
        proxy_set_header        Host            $http_host;
        proxy_set_header        X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
        proxy_set_header        X-Scheme        $scheme;
        proxy_set_header        X-Script-Name   /calibre;  # IMPORTANT: path has NO trailing slash
        auth_request /organizr-auth/4; #Change the X to whatever group you want to allow access
        auth_request_set $auth_user $upstream_http_x_organizr_user;
        proxy_set_header X-WEBAUTH-USER $auth_user;
