Highlights

Identity Brokering Sync Mode

With Identity Brokering Sync Mode it is now possible to control if user profiles are updated on first login, or every login from an external Identity Provider. It is also possible to override this behaviour on individual mappers.

Thanks to Martin Idel

Client Session Timeout for OpenID Connect / OAuth 2.0

Typically, an SSO session last for days if not months, while individual client sessions should ideally be a lot shorter. With the introduction of client session timeout it is now possible to configure a separate timeout for individual clients, as well as a default for all clients within a realm.

Thanks to Yoshiyuki Tabata

OAuth 2.0 Token Revocation (RFC 7009)

For applications that use Keycloak as an OAuth 2.0 Authorization Server there is now support to revoke refresh tokens through the token revocation endpoint.

Security Headers SPI and Response Filter

A new SPI was introduced to allow better flexibility when setting security related headers on responses. This provides a cleaner implementation within Keycloak, but also allows full customisation if needed. Security headers are now set by a response filter instead of within the code itself, which makes it less error prone, removing the chance that some response are missing headers.

Upgrade to WildFly 19

Keycloak server was upgraded to use WildFly 19 under the covers.

Other improvements

  • Support for invoking Application Initiated Actions added to Keycloak JavaScript adapter

  • Performance improvements to fetching resources and policies during evaluation
