Kibana session keepalive when using SAML

I’m using kibana with SAML authentication.
For some reason when the user logs in, I get a security_authentication cookie on my browser but the expiry time is set to 1h from the login time.
This means 1h after I logged in, regardless of using or not kibana in between, my session expires.
Is there any way to have this cookie expiration update on every request?
If I’m actively using kibana (or using automatic refreshes) I would expect my session to not expire.

Looking at I can see the following:

            if (tokenPayload.exp) {
            // The token's exp value trumps the config setting
            this.sessionKeepAlive = false;
            session.exp = parseInt(tokenPayload.exp, 10);
        } else if(this.sessionTTL) {
            session.expiryTime = + this.sessionTTL

but regardless of which settings I use I don’t get my cookie extended.
Also looking at (which I believe is the base for this plugin) it mentions:

searchguard.session.keepalive	boolean, if set to true the session lifetime is extended by searchguard.session.ttl upon each request. Default: true

has anybody been able to setup keepalive so every new request refreshes the security cookie?
