[JIRA] Can JIRA have more than one authenticator class?

I'm referring to the file: atlassian-jira-6.0.6-standalone/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes/seraph-config.xml

Can I keep the following two authenticator classes at the same time?

<authenticator class="com.atlassian.jira.security.login.SSOSeraphAuthenticator"/>

<authenticator class="com.atlassian.jira.security.login.JiraSeraphAuthenticator"/>

Hmm, I don't think it can. I seem to remember I did it a year ago (Jira 5.1) and it simply ignored the second validator.

Just now I tried it out. Same result - second validator is ignored.

Hi Nic,

I'm planning to do further research in this area. If possible, can you explain any reasons why JIRA can't have two?

(Or, where do I get this information?)
