we want to access the Keycloak REST API from one of our backend services. To authenticate, we have setup the followings:
- new clients within our realm
- enabled service account for that client
- assigned all  roles of “realm-management” to the services account
Accessing the API, e.g. fetching a selected user always results in a 401 response.
Steps to make the requests are:
access_tokenfrom https://my-keycloak.com/auth/realms/my-realm/protocol/openid-connect/token using
grant_type=client_credentials+ Client ID + Client Secret
- Fetch user from https://my-keycloak.com/auth/realms/my-realm/users/some-user-id-4711
Authorization: Bearer $ACCESS_TOKENwith the Token from step 1.
My Question: Is it even possible to use a custom client or do we have to stick to login via
admin-cli? How would we need to configure the custom client, to grant access to the REST API.
 for the sake of testing
