Multiple authentication types for kibana?

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 SAML Authentication | Security for Elasticsearch | Search Guard

I can see (curl on the command line) how elastic accepts both basicauth and saml authentication for example.
However, for Kibana, the 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?


no, unfortunately at the moment the Kibana plugin is not able to handle multiple authentication types.
