Configure LDAP

Before running the commands shown on this page, you should load the Bitnami stack environment by executing the installdir/use_APPNAME script (Linux and MacOS) or by clicking the shortcut in the Start Menu under “Start -> Bitnami APPNAME Stack -> Application console” (Windows). On OS X VMs, the installation directory is /opt/bitnami and OS X VM users can click the “Open Terminal” button to run commands. Learn more about the Bitnami stack environment and about OS X VMs.

NOTE: The Approach A sections referred to below do not apply to Bitnami native installers. Users of Bitnami native installers should refer only to the Approach B sections.

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 installdir/redash
      
    • Approach B (Self-contained Bitnami installations):

        $ cd installdir/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 installdir/ctlscript.sh restart
