Get JWT from cookies using JWT Authenticators

Hi guys,

I’m new to Ory / Oathkeeper.

It seems that Oathkeeper can authenticate with JWT send in Authorization header. It’s also possible to authenticate a request based on its cookies using an external service.

I was wondering if it was possible to add a feature allowing to pass JWT from cookies and validate it directly inside Oathkeeper ? ( I can create a PR if you think the feature makes sense )


I don’t think it would, because cookies can have very many layouts (jwt is only one of them) and we don’t want to support all of those ways.
