Basic auth header kibana not working

I have everything enabled that i can find, which by the way is very difficult to find what i need at times with the elastic docs.

I want to pass the Authorization: header with base64 encoded correct credentials for username:password.

I have trace logs set for most realms and when setting that as a header and accessing the page nothing comes through any logs to even show its being rejected.

I have set

xpack.security.authc.http.schemes: [apikey, basic]

Any ideas?

What is the response you're receiving when you send your requests?

No response, im setting the header as a chrome extension to test but get no rejection. No acknowledgement.

Have not tested or confirmed but i have found this in the kibana config which i believe might be causing the issue

elasticsearch.requestHeadersWhitelist: [ authorization ]

This was commented out, I will test and respond if it works.

Cheers
