In Administration → Authentication the user authentication method to Zabbix can be changed. The available methods are internal, LDAP and HTTP authentication.
By default, internal Zabbix authentication is used. To change, click on the button with the method name and press Save.
Internal Zabbix authentication is used.
External LDAP authentication can be used to check user names and passwords. Note that a user must exist in Zabbix as well, however its Zabbix password will not be used.
Zabbix LDAP authentication works at least with Microsoft Active Directory and OpenLDAP.
|LDAP host||Name of LDAP server. For example: ldap://ldap.zabbix.com
For secure LDAP server use ldaps protocol.
|Port||Port of LDAP server. Default is 389.
For secure LDAP connection port number is normally 636.
|Base DN||Base path to search accounts:
ou=Users,ou=system (for OpenLDAP),
DC=company,DC=com (for Microsoft Active Directory)
|Search attribute||LDAP account attribute used for search:
uid (for OpenLDAP),
sAMAccountName (for Microsoft Active Directory)
|Bind DN||LDAP account for binding and searching over the LDAP server, examples:
uid=ldap_search,ou=system (for OpenLDAP),
CN=ldap_search,OU=user_group,DC=company,DC=com (for Microsoft Active Directory)
Required, anonymous binding is not supported.
|Bind password||LDAP password of the account for binding and searching over the LDAP server.|
|Test authentication||Header of a section for testing|
|Login||Name of a test user (which is currently logged in the Zabbix frontend). This user name must exist in the LDAP server.
Zabbix will not activate LDAP authentication if it is unable to authenticate the test user.
|User password||LDAP password of the test user.|
Apache-based (HTTP) authentication can be used to check user names and passwords. Note that a user must exist in Zabbix as well, however its Zabbix password will not be used.
