Hue Incompatible Changes
In HUE-1859, the LDAP synchronization backend was moved to a generic middleware. If
your code uses DesktopSynchronizationBackendBase, you will need to create your own
middleware, and extend the new LdapSynchronizationMiddleware. Put that new custom middleware
class in the middleware= line of the [desktop] section of

## hive_server_host=<FQDN of Hive Server>
# Port where HiveServer2 Thrift server runs on.
