Configuring Authentication in Cloudera Navigator

Cloudera Navigator supports user authentication against Cloudera Manager user accounts and against an external LDAP or Active Directory service. External authentication enables you to assign Cloudera Navigator user roles to LDAP or Active Directory groups containing the appropriate users for each user role. Authentication with a Cloudera Manager user account requires either the Full Administrator or Navigator Administrator user role, and enables the user to use Cloudera Navigator features or to configure the external authentication service.
