Follow_referrals not exposed for ldap config?

Specifies whether Elasticsearch should follow referrals returned by the LDAP server. Referrals are URLs returned by the server that are to be used to continue the LDAP operation (for example, search). Defaults to true .

I don’t see that is an option in the open distro security config file under the ldap sections. Is this possible to enable?


@majster, did you find how to disable this setting?

FWIW - I filed a request here:


Thanks for filing an issue!

Do we have fix for this issue?
