What is Uptime Kuma

Uptime Kuma is an easy-to-use self-hosted monitoring tool.


Uptime Kuma currently supports only a single user and no native SSO solution. To still use authentik, you can work with the Proxy Outpost and a Proxy Provider.


The following placeholders will be used:

  • is the FQDN of the Uptime Kuma install.
  • is the FQDN of the authentik install.

Create an application in authentik. Create a Proxy provider with the following parameters:

  • Internal host

    If Uptime Kuma is running in docker, and you're deploying the authentik proxy on the same host, set the value to http://uptime-kuma:3001, where uptime-kuma is the name of your container.

    If Uptime Kuma is running on a different server to where you are deploying the authentik proxy, set the value to http://<Other Host>:3001.

  • External host Set this to the external URL you will be accessing Uptime Kuma from.

  • Skip path regex

    Add the following regex rules to keep the public status page accessible without authentication.


To avoid that all users get admin access to Uptime Kuma create a group in authentik for the admin user. Next set in authentik for the application under Policy / Group / User Bindings a group binding with the group created above.

To access the dashboard, open, this will start the login with authentik. You can also set this address as the Launch URL for the application.
