[keycloak-user] retrieving custom user attributes

for me this works fine. You have to add a Mapping of Kind 'User Attribute' (Mapper Type) within Clients -> <Choose your client> -> 'Mappers'.

Well, as far as I can see, the unmarshalled AccessToken does not contain any custom attributes. I would expect something like a Map<String,Object> where you can access additional attributes.
Just to be clear: the custom attribute I configured does appear in the JWT token, I am simply searching for an easy way to access them from Java.
There is an 'otherClaims' in the JsonWebToken, should they appear there? (They don't).

Kind regards,
Arjan Lamers

What do you want for an interface?  KeycloakSecurityContext has the
unmarshalled IDToken and AccessToken.
