Sensu requires username and password authentication to access the Sensu dashboard, API, and command line tool (sensuctl). For Sensu’s default user credentials and more information about configuring Sensu role based access control, see the RBAC reference and guide to creating users.

In addition to built-in RBAC, license-activated support for authentication using an authentication provider is available in Sensu Go 5.2.0 and later. See the upgrade guide to upgrade your Sensu installation, and visit the latest documentation to configure an authentication provider.
