For better user experience passport should re-try initialization on request.

Now it do this at startup. As result service fails and admin should restart it manually after enabling passport in GUI.

@yurem yurem added this to the 3.1.4 milestone Apr 10, 2018

@yurem How would you like to see this re-try initialization on request process work?

This app gets configuration from oxTrust. But it also requires oxAuth because this endpoint protected by UMA. Hence Passprot in some case can't get it configuration. As result it just print error in log.

Passprot app should try to get configuration at startup and store load_configuration_state (now it just print error). On next request to app context it should check load_configuration_state and try to obtain configuration again.

Also it will be useful to add timer process to get up to date configuration from oxTrust periodically to avoid Passport restart.

With this fix, a timer task runs upon service start and at every 30s it hits the endpoint /identity/restv1/passport/config using the UMA 2 flow.

If some error is found in any of the flow steps (e.g. underlying ox services down), a message is added to log, but the service continues up and running. Hopefully in a subsequent execution a resonse will be obtained successfully.

Also, from now on there is no need to restart passport if a strategy clientid/secret is added/changed.
