Also available as:

Configure user authentication

After obtaining your LDAP/AD information, configure LDAP/AD user authentication for Cloudbreak.


  1. On the Cloudbreak host, browse to /var/lib/cloudbreak-deployment.
  2. Create a new yml file. By default the name of this file should be uaa-changes.yml, but optionally it can be customized by setting the following in Profile: export UAA_SETTINGS_FILE=<some-file-name>.yml where <some-file-name> is the name that you would like to use for this yml file.
  3. In the yml file enter the following using your LDAP/AD information. Next, save the file and restart Cloudbreak.
