Originally, Keycloak was going to be a SaaS. One internet service where
users could register and create their own Realms....But, we decided that
users will probably want to have full control of their security metadata
and not share a database with other users. Less we have to worry about
from a storage security standpoint.
I've never built a cartridge so apologies if I have it wrong, but IMO,
UPS should support bundling its own keycloak server already
preconfigured, or, it should hook into an existing keycloak instance. I
don't know if this would require 2 different cartridges, or if you would
have an online "installation" UI to make these types of decisions.
