Subject [jira] [Created] (AIRAVATA-2935) Long term support version of Keycloak?
Date Mon, 05 Nov 2018 18:21:00 GMT
Marcus Christie created AIRAVATA-2935:

             Summary: Long term support version of Keycloak?
                 Key: AIRAVATA-2935
             Project: Airavata
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Keycloak Authentication
            Reporter: Marcus Christie

Investigate what is the best way to keep up to date with Keycloak releases.  We probably don't
want to just update to the latest Keycloak release since [they say on their support page|]:

The RH-SSO product derives from a specific version of the Keycloak community and is maintained,
patched, and supported by Red Hat commercially for as long as the terms of your support contract.
*The Keycloak community project, on the other hand, is never patched.* There are no point
releases of the community project and *each release may break backward compatibility*. New
features are developed, experimented with, and baked in community then brought down to be
supported in product if they are popular enough in community. *Think of Keycloak as bleeding
edge with quick releases, unpatched, and limited community support*, while RH-SSO is stable,
supported for a long time, and patched as bugs and security vulnerabilities are found.

(emphasis mine)

I wonder if there is something for RH-SSO like what Centos is to RH Enterprise Linux?  It
would be good to research our options.
