[keycloak-user] Obtaining the user name from the security context

Thanks for the information.

However, I've tried it without success - I also tried using this attribute in the keycloak unconfigured-demo and preconfigured-demo examples for customer-app/product-app, and didn't have an effect on them either.

Just wondering whether the text in the doc "OpenID Connection ID Token attribute to populate the UserPrincipal name with" implies that this attribute only works for OpenID?

With the unconfigured version, it wasn't clear whether this attribute would be set under the realm or secure-deployment elements, so initially I tried just under the realm but then eventually defined the attribute under both. Attached the wildfly standalone-full.xml.
