Kibana Drilldown - URL auth

Hi Kibana-brains,

I am looking at using the URL drilldown in kibana to kick off some actions in an external site. I need to authenticate/authorise these calls in the external system and was wondering if, assuming we have a shared ID Provider, will kibana send the token (eg JWT) in the auth header to the external system when doing a URL drilldown?

Thanks!

URL drilldown is simply a redirect to a URL: just like if you'd copy and paste a URL into your browser navbar. If you are already authenticated at the destination website then it could work without a need to authenticate again.

will kibana send the token (eg JWT) in the auth header to the external system when doing a URL drilldown?

No, it won't.
We have a feature request for Custom dashboard API actions that should cover something like this in the future.
