Happy to hear your feedback!

Very nice, I know the process leveraging the ACL plugin and JWT plugin all to well myself too as a frequent user of those plugins and the OAuth2 :laughing: . Do you cache the JWT on your client side till its exp to minimize cpu utilization around crypto/token generation :wink: ?
