Hey Christian, To add more debugging context: * If I use basic auth against the api with an existing service account, I can than use the sent cookie against the api again. * If I auth against the kerberos-protected portion, I am then not able to use the cookie against the api.
Do you have any thoughts on how I can fix this in the RemoteUserAuthBackend?
