Hello @Aditya Jadhav,

HDP is not tested with Hydra for Knox SSO, but the general understanding is - As long as Hydra supports SAML-based / OIDC authentication, you can make it work with Knox SSO. Please have a look at this article which talks about making OIDC work with Knox: https://community.hortonworks.com/articles/171892/configure-knox-with-openid-connect.html

Hope this helps!
