403 Forbidden for several addons

Hi Guys,

Apologies if I’ve posted this in the wrong category, I wasn’t sure of where it would fit best.

I am having issues with a few addons that I’ve installed on my raspi 4 through supervisor.

Of the 4 add-ons I have installed thus far (ESPHome, InfluxDB, Grafana, Node-Red), ESPHome and NodeRed are the only two that present a web page when you open their web ui from within HA.

The other 2 (InfluxDB, Grafana) both present a " 403 Forbidden" when attempting to browse to them.

Upon inspecting logs, I see these kinds of messages:

2021/08/20 18:38:22 [error] 479#479: *1 access forbidden by rule, client:, server: a0d7b954-grafana, request: "GET / HTTP/1.1", host: "", referrer: ""
2021/08/20 18:38:32 [error] 479#479: *2 access forbidden by rule, client:, server: a0d7b954-grafana, request: "GET /api/health HTTP/1.1", host: ""
2021/08/20 18:16:44 [error] 797#797: *1 access forbidden by rule, client:, server: a0d7b954-influxdb, request: "GET / HTTP/1.1", host: "", referrer: ""
21-08-20 18:30:26 WARNING (MainThread) [supervisor.misc.tasks] Watchdog missing application response from a0d7b954_grafana
21-08-20 18:32:26 WARNING (MainThread) [supervisor.misc.tasks] Watchdog found a problem with a0d7b954_grafana application!

This leads me to believe that there is a configuration somewhere I need to modify to prevent it from restricting access via ingress to specific IP ranges?

I’ve been pulling my hair out over this for a few days.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!


The two different IP addresses (192.168.x.x and 172.30.y.y) makes me think you are running some kind of virtual enviroment, so maybe you ned to allow the access to the network ports in the virtual enviroments.

Hi Wally,

That’s not actually the case. The 172 addressing is used by docker for connectivity between each of the containers that make up the add ons, hassio, supervisor etc. is the network that the clients will be sourcing from to access the home assistant installation which is hosted on a raspberry Pi with address

I believe the issue is to do with the way in which ingress is restricting access to the addon containers but I’m not sure hence the post here.


Or you running HA OS or Supervised ? And if Supervised, on what OS ?

Hi Francis.

I am running Raspbery Pi OS with the hassio supervisor.

Please see below output:

What’s interesting is that Node Red and ESPHome worked without issue, it’s just these other ones that are having problems.

Here are some more example logs of where I’m seeing the connection rejections:

2021/08/22 10:30:59 [error] 487#487: *1 access forbidden by rule, client:, server: a0d7b954-grafana, request: "GET /api/health HTTP/1.1", host: ""

Interestingly in the case of Grafana, I see that it is continually restarting after it is online for a few minutes.

Here’s a dump of the logs I see up until the crash/restart:

That does not explain why the influxdb web interface is also not loading.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

For completeness, here is the config I have in place for the Grafana instance:

Did you get this sorted? I had an issue, and it was Firefox, toggle the enhanced tracking on the shield icon next to the address…

Same issue here, seems the issue is related to a different ip setup. for me is the ip of hassio_supervisor not of homeassistant.

Maybe a solution is to support configurable ingress ips here: https://github.com/hassio-addons/addon-grafana/blob/73ae34b006af22f8934611429acda5b0e3ddf601/grafana/rootfs/etc/nginx/servers/ingress.conf#L8

My workaround for now is:

docker exec -it addon_a0d7b954_grafana bash -c 'sed -i -e "s/" /etc/nginx/servers/ingress.conf;for p in `s6-ps | grep "nginx:" | grep -v grep | tr -s " " | cut -d" " -f2`; do echo $p; kill $p; done'
