LDAP Authentication

Note

This feature is only available with Scylla Enterprise. If you are using Scylla Open Source, this feature will not be available.

New in version Scylla: Enterprise 2021.1.2

Scylla supports user authentication via an LDAP server by leveraging the SaslauthdAuthenticator. By configuring saslauthd correctly against your LDAP server, you enable Scylla to check the user’s credentials through it.
