Using Direct Bind

To use the direct bind method for LDAP authentication, edit these parameters in the ldap section of the hue.ini file:
  1. Set search_bind_authentication=false.
  2. If you are using the Active Directory directory service, uncomment the line with the nt_domain parameter. Change the value from to the NT domain you want to connect to.
  3. If you are using any other directory service, uncomment the line with ldap_username_pattern and specify the format, such as the one shown here: Note that <username> will be replaced by the information provided on the Hue login page.
  4. Restart httpfs so ldap settings will take effect.
  5. Restart Hue once all configuration changes have been made so the changes will take effect.
