Reference | Supported authentication methods#

Dataiku DSS (DSS) can use any of the following authentication methods to authenticate users on the platform:

  • Local
    • This authentication method stores the user’s account and password locally on the DSS instance itself.

  • LDAP
    • This method uses LDAP account/LDAP password or SSO directory services. For example, DSS can use a directory service such as Microsoft Active Directory (which stores information about your organization’s users and groups). This alleviates having to create new users manually.

    • This involves authenticating with a user account and password from your LDAP service, outside of DSS–for example, Microsoft Active Directory installed on a server on premise.

  • Local (no auth, for SSO only).
    • Through this method, DSS uses Single Sign-On (SSO) to authenticate users through an external, SAML 2.0-compliant identity provider (IdP).

    • Users securely initiate a session in DSS without having to sign into DSS.
