Configure LDAP

NOTE: We are in the process of modifying the file structure and configuration for many Bitnami stacks. On account of these changes, the file paths stated in this guide may change depending on whether your Bitnami stack uses native Linux system packages (Approach A), or if it is a self-contained installation (Approach B). To identify your Bitnami installation type and what approach to follow, run the command below:

 $ test ! -f "/opt/bitnami/common/bin/openssl" && echo "Approach A: Using system packages." || echo "Approach B: Self-contained installation."

The output of the command indicates which approach (A or B) is used by the installation, and will allow you to identify the paths, configuration and commands to use in this guide. Refer to the FAQ for more information on these changes.

To configure and use LDAP, follow these steps:

  • Navigate to the Redash installation directory. Depending on your installation type, execute the following commands:

    • Approach A (Bitnami installations using system packages):

        $ cd /opt/bitnami/redash
      
    • Approach B (Self-contained Bitnami installations):

        $ cd /opt/bitnami/apps/redash/htdocs/
      
  • Install the LDAP3 module:

      $ . venv/bin/activate
      $ pip install ldap3
    
  • Add the lines below in the .env file inside the Redash installation directory. Replace the LDAP-URL placeholder with the domain name or IP address of your LDAP server:

      REDASH_LDAP_LOGIN_ENABLED="true"
      REDASH_LDAP_URL="ldap//LDAP-URL:389"
      REDASH_LDAP_BIND_DN="uid=ldapreader,ou=users"
      REDASH_LDAP_BIND_DN_PASSWORD="ldapreader-password"
      REDASH_LDAP_DISPLAY_NAME_KEY="uid"
      REDASH_LDAP_EMAIL_KEY="mail"
      REDASH_LDAP_CUSTOM_USERNAME_PROMPT=" Please enter login account"
      REDASH_LDAP_SEARCH_TEMPLATE="(sAMAccountName=%(username)s)"
      REDASH_LDAP_DN="dc=ourdomain,dc=com"
    
  • Restart all servers:

      $ sudo /opt/bitnami/ctlscript.sh restart
