Subject: [dotcms] OAuth Plugin / Authorization question
CAUTION: This email originated from outside of the organization. Do not click links or open attachments unless you recognize the sender and know the content is safe.
we are currently doing some tests for authentication and authorization with the OAuth 2 plugin that can be found at
Our goal is to set up and manage our users in keycloak (and in keycloak only!). Furthermore, depending on the groups / roles that we assign to our keycloak users, the specific user should or should not be authorized to use the admin UI and be able to act as a backend-user.
So far, we have set up a successful authentication, but we struggle with the authorization, i.e. the group / role mapping. We have found out that we can assign a "CMS Administrator" group in keycloak which seems to determine the "CMS Admin" flag in the dotcms (marked as green in the screenshot below). We have, however, not figured out if there might be similar groups for the dotcms "Back-end User" and the "Can Login To Admin UI" flags (marked as red).
Has anybody run into the same authorization problem before and figured out how the group / role mapping works for the above access flags? If not: Is our requirement even valid, or is this just not doable?
Thanks for your time,
looking forward to any kind of answer,
