Subject [jira] [Commented] (AIRFLOW-3164) verify certificate of LDAP server

On your note on FAB's usage in Airflow.  FAB still supports non TLS indeed, but we should
maybe consider suggesting a patch that disables it. You have plenty of time to test it without
being required to use it and you are not required to upgrade if you don't want. We just don't
want to maintain two UIs side by side.


Long story short: enable TLS on your LDAP server it is not hard to do and it is best practice.
There is no reason not to.
