Authentication & IdP Connectors

Learn how to enable users to access a cluster using their preferred identity provider.

December 4, 2023

HPE ML Data Management has an embedded Open ID Connect based on Dex, allowing for vendor-neutral authentication using your existing credentials from various back-ends. You can enable users to authenticate to a HPE ML Data Management cluster using their favorite Identity Providers by following the articles in this section.

When you enable authentication, you gain access to HPE ML Data Management’s authorization features. You can use HPE ML Data Management’s Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) model to configure authorization for your users and assign roles that grant certain permissions for interacting with HPE ML Data Management’s resources.
