Configure Zeppelin for Authentication: LDAP and Active Directory

Zeppelin supports LDAP and Active Directory (AD) as identity stores for authentication. Because Active Directory is based on LDAP requirements, the configuration process is similar; however, the properties differ.

Before configuring LDAP or AD, user accounts must exist on Zeppelin nodes; and users, groups, and domain information must be stored in your LDAP or AD directory. You will need user, group, and domain information to configure LDAP or AD for Zeppelin.


You should configure and enable SSL to the Zeppelin Web server whenever you enable LDAP or AD authentication. Without SSL, network communication is visible.
