Wildfly 20
Instead of needing to first add a credential to a credential store in order to reference it from a credential-reference, WildFly 20 adds the ability to automatically add a credential to a previously defined credential store. Check out Farah Juma’s blog post for an introduction to this new feature.
The Elytron subsystem configuration was enhanced to allow the definition of a regex-based security role mapping mechanism. With this functionality it is possible for users to easily translate a list of roles (eg. *-admin, *-user) to simpler roles (eg. admin, user) without having to implement their own custom components.
