Andy Wilkinson (Migrated from SEC-2730) said:

The springSecurityFilterChain bean that's created by WebSecurityConfiguration is unordered. This means that it's considered to have the default order provided by AnnotationAwareOrderComparator which is LOWEST_PRECEDENCE. This makes the filter go last (or joint last if there are other LOWEST_PRECEDENCE filters configured) when a request is being processed. In a Spring Boot application this makes it difficult for a user to configure their own filter which should run after Spring Security's filter.

0 is not a good priority for springSecurityFilterChain, there are many cases when a filter must precede springSecurityFilterChain, for example: character encoding, CSRF, HttpSession, rate-limit, logging & exception handling.

However, something like @Order(100000) should be sufficient to finally fix this issue.

I"m closing this as won't fix. The reason is that Order does not have any meaning on a Filter outside of Spring Boot, so it should (and is) be handled by Spring Boot.
