CDP 7.1.7 Kafka LDAP setup, add multiple LDAP domains

avatar
Explorer

Hi Team,

 

We enabled LDAP authentication on Kafka cluster and added below LDAP DN template so that it allows all the users from its domain. We are trying to allow users present in other domain as well but couldn't find any templates. Can any one help to achieve this use-case.

 

Current setup(working): ldap.auth.user.dn.template = {0}@domain1.org.com

Required setup : ldap.auth.user.dn.template = {0}@domain1.org.com + {0}@domain2.org.com

 

We tried adding the other domain with comma & space separated but in vain.

 

CDP 7.1.7, Kafka 2.5

 

Thanks,

Uday

@Uday483 ,

 

Unfortunately the template option only works for a single domain with LDAP, I'm afraid.

One thing you can test is to set "ldap.auth.user.dn.template = {0}". With this, though, when the client authenticate they would have to specify the qualified user name rather then just the short name (e.g. alice@domain1.org.com, or bob@domain2.org.com). I haven't tested this before, so I'm not 100% sure it will work.

 

Can you use Kerberos authentication instead of LDAP? With Kerberos auth there should be no problems.

 

Cheers,

André

Hi André,

 

Kerberos is already enabled, we have few users who don't want to use Kerberos which is why we are exploring LDAP.

Ok. Did you try the ldap configuration I mentioned above?

Hello André,

 

I am observing below error after updating LDAP User DN Template to {0}. Fun part is without mentioning any domain, previous domain user is still able to connect but new domain user connectivity fails.

Hi André,

 

With or without domain in the configuration, its taking default domain. 

If we provide multiple domains also its not authenticating new one.

 

Thanks,
