Posisble to enable SAML authentication with LDAP or JDBC?

Question asked by David McWhinnie on Jan 17, 2019

Using 8.2 here and have enabled SAML authentication.  This all works great and allows me to embed dashboards in my other applications and not prompt for psswords multiple times.  However, I would also like to use PDI with the Pentaho server as a repository, pragmatically control CDA cache via PDI, and run the command line export-import for backups etc.

 

Unfortunately all of these run outside of the browser, and I don't know how SAML authentication would be possible.  So, is it possible to have SAML along with LDAP or JDBC authentication?  I looked at the documentation on setting up multiple authentication providers, but it seems SAML takes control and doesn't allow a fall back to the others.
