Using Bind Credentials (Search and Bind)

To use the search and bind method for LDAP authentication, edit these parameters in the ldap section of the hue.ini file:
  1. Set search_bind_authentication=true.
  2. In the Authentication backend section, add the following line after the ##backend= statement: Hue searches base_dn for an entry with user_name_attr that contains the user name provided on the Hue login page.
  3. Restart httpfs so ldap settings will take effect.
  4. Restart Hue once all configuration changes have been made so the changes will take effect.
