Setting Search Bind Authentication and Importing Users and Groups

Hue uses search bind authentication by default. To enable direct bind authentication, set the search_bind_authentication property to false in the /etc/hue/conf/hue.ini file:

# Do not use search bind authentication.

# Whether or not to follow referrals
