Not OOTB. You can create JIRA though (or search if JIRA already exists)
for better OOTB brokering support with the directGrant. But I guess we
are not going to add that in the near future unless there is bigger
demand for it...
Other option is, that for AngularJS you can use keycloak.js adapter. We
have examples for that in the example distribution. We have also support
for themes, so you can customize login page.

Thanks for all the tips Marek.
Does this mean that for any Single Page Application where we do not
want to take the user outside of the single application page to a
login page there are no solutions with Keycloak when brokering ?
Actually, this is our real use case. Our SPA (Angular JS) is
configured with Keycloak A and we want users known by Keycloak B to be
able to authenticate on our app but we don't want them to lose the
context of the app by redirecting there navigator to another page.

We don't have brokering for directGrant flow though. You would
need to code authenticator by yourself.
Maybe I would do something like the authenticator where you can
send the parameters like for example
You will create new directGrant flow and you will put your
authenticator to it. Your authenticator will then do something like:
- Check if there is "external_idp=true" parameter. If not, then
just passthrough to other authenticators in the chain to do
classic directGrant login against "local" Keycloak server (like
default directGrant flow do)
- Then check the parameters external_username and
external_passsword to login against your Keycloak B (Assuming you
know where Keycloak B is and what is the desired clientId of
Keycloak B to authenticate against it)
- If authentication against Keycloak B successful, you will
successfully finish the authenticator, so your client will receive
the accessToken from Keycloak A, which can be used to access your API.
You can take a look at existing Authentication SPI docs and
examples and at the existing implementations of DirectGrant
authenticators for the inspiration (ValidateUsername,
