Support various login configurations at once in WebSphere Liberty Profile

UIs provided by Java EE applications running in WebSphere Liberty Profile should establish the current user security context based on a MP-JWT provided by security proxy that has already authenticated the user and loaded his user groups from some authorization directory. In parallel, technical HTTP-based interfaces (REST) should authenticate and authorized the calling system by other means, e.g. basic authentication. WLP currently supports only one mechanism at the same time.

As a simple example, you can separate it by requestUrl so that certain URLs are handled by an OIDC configuration, others are handled by a SAML configuration, etc... The full support is explained here:

    I believe this should provide the support you are looking for, but if not, please add a comment to explain what support is still lacking for you.
