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.
    backend=desktop.auth.backend.LdapBackend
  3. Restart Hue once all configuration changes have been made so the changes will take effect.
