For now, I want the default value to show  up in the admin console only when  looking at the config of the authenticator. The issue is that the default value I am setting for the properties in authenticatorFactory are not showing up on the admin console when you look at the authenticator -> config. I see the properties displayed there but they dont show the default values I set in the factory class. For booleans, it always show false and for string types, always blank and not what I set. I am not looking for the default values in  AuthenticationFlowContext.getAuthenticatorConfig. I am looking for it in the admin console only. I expected this to work but it doesn't. Is it a bug?

It looks like the default value is only used in the admin console to show a default value for the option when configuring the authenticator. The default values are not added to AuthenticationFlowContext.getAuthenticatorConfig unless the authenticator is first configured through the admin console. It would be better if it was though so default values would always be available. Feel free to create an enhancement JIRA issue for it.

Infact, not only Boolean, it does not seem to work for even properties that are STRING_TYPE. I was using 1.9.4 version earlier but now I tried with the latest 2.0.0 version too and it does not work on either. What is the issue?

Bruno, I had tried "true" also but that did not work either. Forgot to mention in my original post. I am not sure why true or "true" doesn't work if that's expected. Is there a bug? Does anyone have a clue on this?

Hi Rashmi, try "true" instead of true. Take a look at this:

In theory, should work.
