Cache keycloak authz requests #1222

merged 2 commits into from Sep 6, 2019


Copy link

commented Sep 4, 2019

The new RBAC system means the API queries keycloak for permissions. In cases where the API returns a lot of data, it can hammer keycloak with a lot of permission check requests. Since it's unlikely that a users permissions will change in the middle of an API request, we can cache the results per request.

Also added some better logging when keycloak auth requests fail.
