Shinyproxy & Keycloak: Authenticated but can't open apps consistently


#1

I’ve got shinyproxy running on the machine itself and keycloak running in a container. Keycloak runs on keycloak.mydomain.tld and shinyproxy on shinyproxy.mydomain.tld. The authentication works – if I open the shinyproxy.mydomain.tld url in an incognito tab, it takes me to the keycloak login page and logging in takes me to the shinyproxy app listing. If I open the shinyproxy.mydomain.tld url from a fresh session of shinyproxy (restarted via systemctl), it successfully opens the first app I open. The second app, however, gives me an error. My suspicion is that something about my keycloak client config isn’t right. All I have done on that end is enable Authorization. I haven’t added any mappings, but I’m not sure if that matters. I haven’t set up any roles or groups either.

This is my shinyproxy config:

proxy:
  title: Open Analytics Shiny Proxy
  landing-page: /
  hide-navbar: true
  bind-address: 127.0.0.1
  useForwardHeaders: true
  heartbeat-rate: 10000
  heartbeat-timeout: 60000
  port: 8080
  authentication: keycloak
  keycloak:
    auth-server-url: https://keycloak.mydomain.tld/auth
    realm: MyRealm
    resource: shinyproxy
    credentials-secret: a_valid_secret
  container-log-path: ./container-logs
  docker:
    cert-path: /home/none
    url: http://localhost:2375
    port-range-start: 20000
  specs:
  - id: 01_hello
    display-name: Hello Application
    description: Application which demonstrates the basics of a Shiny app
    container-cmd: ["R", "-e", 'shiny::runApp(appDir = system.file("examples", "01_hello", package = "shiny"), launch.browser=FALSE, port = 3838, host = "0.0.0.0")']
    container-image: openanalytics/shinyproxy-demo
  - id: 06_tabsets
    container-cmd: ["R", "-e", 'shiny::runApp(appDir = system.file("examples", "06_tabsets", package = "shiny"), launch.browser=FALSE, port = 3838, host = "0.0.0.0")']
    container-image: openanalytics/shinyproxy-demo

logging:
  file:
    shinyproxy.log

And here’s the error I get:

# Error

#3

Ok, the issue seems to be that I haven’t added any access-groups to the application configs. By the way, it says access-groups, but what it is actually looking for is keycloak roles. This is important!

However, there seems to be a problem with shinyproxy. If I don’t have any access-groups specified, the apps show for anyone logged in to the specified realm, and the first app that’s opened is opened successfully but any subsequent ones throw the above error. Either the apps without specified access-groups should be visible for anyone logged in and they show load (as opposed to throwing the above error), or they should not show on the app listing.


#4

It looks like we are having the exact same problem. ShinyProxy redirects to keycloak for authentication and after successfully logging in, I see the links to the available apps. Starting an app for the first time works fine, but running the app a second time throws the error as described by @hendiatris.

Here is my application.yml:

proxy:
  title: My Apps
  logo-url:
  landing-page: /
  port: 8080
  heartbeat-rate: 10000
  heartbeat-timeout: 60000
  authentication: keycloak
  useForwardHeaders: true
  keycloak:
    realm: master
    auth-server-url: https://url.to.keycloak.server/auth
    resource: shiny
    credentials-secret: a-valid-secret
    admin-groups: shiny
  docker:
    url: http://localhost:2375
  specs:
  - id: my_app
    display-name: My App
    description: Some description
    container-cmd: ["R", "-e", "shiny::runApp('/root/my_app/app')"]
    container-image: local/shinyapp
    access-groups: shiny
logging:
  file:
    shinyproxy.log

I have set up the (realm) role “shiny” in keycloak and assigned the role to a user.

@hendiatris, any other suggestions I could look into?


#5

Hi @hendiatris, @stefan,

The error mentioned above (NullPointerException) is related to this issue, and may be triggered when the Keycloak user does not have a first/last name configured.

Can you confirm that? I.e. when your user logs in, their name should be shown in the top right corner of the ShinyProxy header bar. If no name is shown, the NullPointerException will occur when starting an app.

To avoid this problem, a new setting was introduced in 2.0.5: proxy.keycloak.name-attribute.
See also: https://www.shinyproxy.io/configuration/#single-sign-on-keycloak
This setting allows you to use a different property (e.g. email) instead of the user’s first/last name.


#6

Awesome! Adding a name to the user in keycloak indeed fixed the problem. Thank you for the quick response @fmichielssen.
