Multiple authentication types for kibana?

#1

Is there any way to allow multiple authentication types to kibana (not elasticsearch) ?

I’ve setup elastic to use multiple authentication domains, as described here https://opendistro.github.io/for-elasticsearch-docs/docs/security/saml/#running-multiple-authentication-domains
I can see (curl on the command line) how elastic accepts both basicauth and saml authentication for example.
However, for kibana, the opendistro_security.auth.type configuration takes a string, not an array of authentication types. I’d like to be able to login to kibana using https://username:password@kibana which would send http authentication headers. In case no authentication is sent, kibana/elastic would fallback to SAML authentication.

Is there any way to achieve this?

Hi!

Unfortunately, there is no way to enable multiple authentication with Kibana at the moment.
