Configuring Ambari Authentication with LDAP/AD
Also available as:

LDAP Authentication and Authorization Testing

You can use Ambari Ambari Web > Manage Users and Groups to check whether users and groups appear as expected.

After you have saved your ldap configurations and synchronized users successfully, verify that the integration worked using the following steps:
  1. In Ambari Web > Manage Ambari > Users, verify that you can see all imported users, grouped correctly.
  2. In Ambari Web > Manage Ambari > Groups, click a group name to assign access roles to imported groups or users.
  3. Verify that your imported users can log in with their ldap credentials and perform role-appropirate tasks.
If your user integration does not appear as expected, review logs at /var/log/ambari-server/ambari-server.log and review your LDAP configuration settings.
