Do the following to resolve this issue,

Please check whether the Skedler admin credentials which are configured in the skedler_reports.yml and reporting.yml are the same. If they are not configured, please configure them to resolve the issue.

However, we support the security plugins like X-pack, open distro, search guard, Nginx, and security onion. SAML, LDAP, Azure ADFS is still under progress and currently, we don’t support them.
