Marek, please correct me if I wrong.
What Marek is suggesting is remove role check entirely and only check
for user consents. The reason is that from an OAuth2 perspective we
*only* need to make sure that user consents are still valid.
With client scopes, the user no longer consents access to individual
roles but scopes where the actually granted roles could depend on the
granted scopes. In case roles are granted directly to a user, during a
refresh the new token will reflect the current granted roles and it
does not really matter if the RT was issued before with less or more
roles as the resulting AT will reflect the actual granted roles.
- User authenticated to some client and the token was issued to him with
roles ["role1", "role2"]
- Admin removed the role "role1" from user role mappings (or from client
scope role mappings of client)
- Now refreshToken request is sent. I think at this moment new token can
be issued, which won't contain "role1", but will contain just single
role ["role2"] . What we're doing now is that refreshToken request is
rejected due the TokenManager.verifyAccess and that's the behaviour,
which I propose to change and remove this TokenManager.verifyAccess.
Once that is removed, we will have expected behaviour (just "role2" will
be present in the token).

I think it's better if the old role is just removed. If you think
the new access token is sent to a service in most cases and the
only has that new token as a reference for what roles the user has
I don't understand what you mean about "it is sufficient to check
rather than roles". Both need to be checked, always. Consents
access, while role is the permissions the user/client have.
I meant that refreshToken request should be rejected if it requires some
clientScopes, which user doesn't have consent anymore. Which can happen
if consent was rejected in the meantime. We're already doing it. Another
- User authenticated to some client and the token was issued to him. On
the consent screen he approved scopes "profile" and "email". The token
will contain those client scopes "profile email"
- Consent was removed from the user (for example revoked by the user in
- RefreshToken request is sent. At this moment, refreshToken request
should be rejected as user doesn't have required consents. And that's
what we're doing.
For roles, we don't need to reject the refreshToken request, but just
remove the roles, which are not available anymore from the token as
