LDAP Overview

  • Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is a client/server protocol used to access and manage directory information. This allows user to read/edit directories over IP networks and runs directly over TCP/IP using simple string formats for data transfer.

  • In Spinnaker, a standard ‘bind’ approach is used for LDAP authentication.

Configure LDAP using Halyard

        hal config security authn ldap enable
  • Execute the below command to edit and add the all the LDAP related parameters Spinnaker settings

        hal config security authn ldap edit --user-dn-pattern="uid={0},uid=users" --
