LDAP (Group based) Login resulting in 401


#1

Trying to login with ldap users in the appropriate group results in a 401 error

Config

- name: "::Test::"
  ldap_auth:
    name: "ldap1"
    groups: ["MyGroup"]
    cache_ttl_in_sec: 60
  indices: ["prefix*"]
  verbosity: info
  kibana_access: ro
  kibana_hide_apps: ["readonlyrest_kbn", "timelion", "kibana:dev_tools", "kibana:management"]

Error

Did some log digging, turns out the rule block is never added hence why it doesn’t appear in the list of failed authentications.

This seems caused by a java policy problem

Caused by: com.unboundid.ldap.sdk.LDAPException: An error occurred while attempting to connect to server ldapipaddress:389: IOException(LDAPException(resultCode=91 (connect error), errorMessage=‘An error occurred while attempting to establish a connection to server /ldapipaddress:389: AccessControlException(access denied (“java.net.SocketPermission” “ldapipaddress:389” “connect,resolve”)), ldapSDKVersion=4.0.9, revision=29290’))

I tried implementing the solution found in

No love, continuing my investigation

@Woodsmen can you please edit your posts and use the “</>” icon from the message composer toolbar? So the code would format properly. This way we remove all this guess work with shape of quotes!
