Hi Stian
Our scenario is that we do not want to expose the admin UI externally.This opens the system to an external exploit.
At the moment we have two options,1) Block, via a rule on the load balancer port / (partial) path2) Change / hack the KeycloakSessionServletFilter to block external requests
Note we had to implement 2 as the company policies for the LB didn't allow path based rules.The issue has been raised previously...https://issues.jboss.org/browse/KEYCLOAK-2944

It's still very early in development, but you will probably have the 
option of putting it on a different port and even a different server.  
Of course, the default will be to sill run it as you do today.

But I'm interested in your use case.  Why do you need it on a different
