The LDAP authorizer plugin is included in the Confluent Platform commercial component
confluent-server package. To use LDAP authorizer, you must install or migrate
to Confluent Server. The LDAP authorizer is not supported with
or Apache Kafka®. Refer to Migrate to Confluent Server for installation instructions.
Activate the Plugin
After the installation is complete, you add the following config in the Apache Kafka®
broker config file to activate (e.g.
/etc/kafka/server.properties). The URL
for your LDAP server and the configuration options to connect to your LDAP server
and obtain the mapping of users to groups should also be added to the broker
configuration. In 5.3.0 and later, configuration options for the LDAP Authorizer are prefixed with
supported for backward compatibility).
