Hi [~gkannan35],

This would be a good thing to investigate when we look at upgrading our version of Keycloak.

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.

 It would be good to research our options.
