Alternative LDAP auth backend for airflow to support openLDAP installation without memberOf overlay

Project description

An alternative LDAP backend for airflow

The default LDAP backend works with OpenLDAP if the memberOf overlay is
activated (see
I.e., users must present the `memberOf` attribute to know what group they
belong to. If your LDAP server only has groups with `memberUid` (or any
other key like `member`) listing the users belonging to the group, then
you need something different. This is what this module attemps to provide.


Using pip:

pip install airflow-alt-ldap


Activate authentication via this LDAP backend in `airflow.cfg` config:

authenticate = True
auth_backend = airflow-alt-ldap.auth.backend.ldap_auth

Then you can configure that module using the following keys (example conf to be adapted):
uri = ldap://localhost:389
user_basedn = ou=people,dc=nexmo,dc=com
user_filter = uid=*
user_name_attr = uid
group_basedn = ou=groups,dc=nexmo,dc=com
group_member_attr = memberUid
group_filter = cn=*
superuser_filter = cn=admingroup
data_profiler_filter = cn=datagroup
bind_user = uid=binddn,dc=example,dc=com
bind_password = MyAwesomePassword
# cacert = /etc/ca/ldap_ca.crt
# Set search_scope to one of them: BASE, LEVEL , SUBTREE
# Set search_scope to SUBTREE if using Active Directory, and not specifying an Organizational Unit
search_scope = SUBTREE
