Subject Re: Nifi Registry LDAP
Date Tue, 10 Apr 2018 19:10:25 GMT
If everything is configured correctly, this error usually indicates that the server did not
locate your login credentials when processing the login request. That usually means it will
not even attempt to authenticate the credentials, so I'm not sure it is an LDAP configuration


If you want to check this manually using developer tools in a browser (e.g., Chrome or Firefox)
you can look at the HTTP traffic to see if credentials are being passed to the server. NiFi
Registry uses the HTTP Basic Auth protocol to login (credentials are encoded in the Authorization
header and passed to the server from the login page to generate a temporary authentication


So after clicking "Login", you should look for an HTTP POST to <base_url>/nifi-registry-api/access/token/login,
which should have an "Authorization" header with the value "Basic {encoded-username-and-password}"


If the credentials are there, it is likely something is misconfigured on the server side with
the identity provider so that login credentials are not even being looked for. If the credentials
are not there... well I've never seen that. I would probably as if your NiFi Registry Server
running behind a load balancer or proxy that could be interfering with HTTP headers?


What version of NiFi Registry are you using? 0.1.0 or a version built from source?


Hope this helps,

now not cooperating since I moved to using Jumpcloud.

able to troubleshoot and fix the issues myself. I am running into a unique issue with my Nifi-Registry
when I try to login with my LDAP credentials like I do for the nifi cluster I get in my logs
with this:
