CFM Is it mandatory to enable Nifi SSL to configure Ldap Authentication?

Cloudera Employee

Hello Team,

Is it mandatory to enable ssl for Nifi and Nifi registry in order to configure Ldap Authentication?

I followed all steps mentioned in article https://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/CFM/CFM-1.0.1/securing-cfm/content/cfm-configure-ldap.html

When I open Nifi Ui no login window pops up.

Regards,

Hemanth

From the HDF documenation it is clear that "NiFi does not perform user authentication over HTTP. Using HTTP, all users will be granted all roles."

 

https://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDF3/HDF-3.4.1.1/nifi-security/content/user_authentication... 

 

So it is mandatory to enabled Nifi ssl to have ldap_login_identity_provider
