You don't always need to register a client for a REST services, but it
needs to be registered if:
* You invoke token introspection endpoint
* You use authorization services
* You want to retrieve config for the adapter from Keycloak
* You want to assign client level roles to the service

But, if all you want is to verify the token you can skip registering in
Keycloak server.
