Configure LDAP for IAM

If you integrate LDAP for IAM to Mirantis Container Cloud, add the required LDAP configuration to cluster.yaml.template during the bootstrap of the management cluster.

Note

The example below defines the recommended non-anonymous authentication type. If you require anonymous authentication, replace the following parameters with authType: "none":

authType: "simple"
bindCredential: ""
bindDn: ""

To configure LDAP for IAM:

  1. Open cluster.yaml.template for editing. Select from the following options depending on your cloud provider type:

    • AWS: templates/aws/cluster.yaml.template

    • Azure:templates/azure/cluster.yaml.template

    • Bare metal: templates/bm/cluster.yaml.template

    • OpenStack: templates/cluster.yaml.template

    • vSphere: templates/vsphere/cluster.yaml.template

    • Equinix Metal: templates/equinixmetal/cluster.yaml.template or templates/equinixmetalv2/cluster.yaml.template

  2. Configure the keycloak:userFederation:providers: and keycloak:userFederation:mappers: sections as required:

    Note

    • Verify that the userFederation section is located on the same level as the initUsers section.

    • Verify that all attributes set in the mappers section are defined for users in the specified LDAP system. Missing attributes may cause authorization issues.

Now, return to the bootstrap instruction depending on the provider type of your management cluster.
