[keycloak-dev] Admin API Authz was Re: [keycloak-user] Keycloak Performance with large number of realms

[keycloak-dev]  See below thread.

I think that this problem might be solved by the work I'm doing. I'm 
changing the admin console to not include roles in the token. The Admin 
REST API instead will see that the token was generated for the console 
client (by "aud" claim) and look up role mappings directly.  I have to 
do this anyways because with the new fine grain admin permissions, I 
don't want admins to have to change the scope of the admin console 
client every time a new fine grain permission policy is specified.
