Hello! Hope everyone had a good weekend.
Are there any plans to release a tutorial for adding security to the Prefect Core Server that's deployed to GCP?
I'm looking into adding an nginx reverse proxy on my GCP Compute Engine VM where the Prefect Server is hosted but no success.
Not sure if anyone has done something like that before and can point me to some available online resources? Would be much appreciated.

Hello @Riley Hun,
No plans for a tutorial that I'm aware of, but I'm happy to bring this up with the team.

@Kyle Moon-Wright - That would be just super. I'm admittedly not the greatest when it comes to Networking 😞

We won’t be releasing any security based tutorials for server; when it comes to authentication and security, Prefect Cloud is our opinionated implementation

I would be open to using Prefect Cloud because that would most definitely alleviate a lot of the hassle of setting up security/authentication. Actually, that was originally what I wanted to implement. I'll have to talk with our infrastructure lead because there would be security concerns about the orchestration layer being hosted outside of our company.

Nice! Cloud will definitely make your life easier. I'm happy to provide you with some bullet points/ammunition for your internal chat if you need.

Hi @Riley Hun, not sure if I understand fully what you’re looking to do, but i’ve used this tool for other projects as an authentication proxy in front. It’s very easy to setup. https://github.com/oauth2-proxy/oauth2-proxy
