could somebody please explain why there is the identity service? What is its purpose?
In the camunda GUI, I know of no places where I could walk through the user directory. When assigning permissions, I have to type the user and group names manually, there is no dropdown lists
In the process code (Java Delegates), in async jobs, the identity service does not deliver any information (as. e.g. discussed here)
if the application code wants to know the user and its memberships it could install all the necessary pieces (e.g. servlet filters etc.) at the application level and integrate any technologies it needs.
So my question is: why is there the IdentityService in the camunda engine? How does the engine use it?
Thank you for any information.
