Guys, I don't know if that's the proper place to ask, but I've heard that Ribbon was going to be deprecated and its support dropped from future versions of spring cloud netflix. Do you know where can I find any information about it? Is is true? (or half true)

hey guys. I am using zuuls options to proxy a certain url to a PHP legacy backend, built with symfony. This works pretty well, until I am doing parallel XHRs. In this case, one of the requests may fail with 500, but no exception or something. Just 500 with empty response body
does anyone know this behaviour?

Hello there. I am pretty sure my question is not new, but I can't find proper answer. Is there any other authentication support for Spring Cloud Config besides Base Auth? Somethig like JWT? Is my only option BYO solution? Thanks in advance.

In cloud foundry they use OAuth/JWT.
It's just spring and spring Security. So we don't provide anything out of the box, but it's easy to implement your own.

Thanks, Dave. Spring Cloud is such convenient, so I expected some JWT solution out-of-the-box. But you are correct, it's not hard to code it. Just don't like idea touching every micro service with config-client enabled.

But "touching" just means "make sure they add a dependency". It's not hard.

Ugh, I feel like I don't get it now. Each micro service already has spring-cloud-starter-config dependency. But also it needs to have custom logic for following: access endpoint with username/password, receive token, send request along with token for getting config values. Do you propose to move this logic into library? Could you please elaborate?

I'd think it would be your own library+autoconfig
