      1) setup authentication-context:

      /subsystem=elytron/authentication-configuration=auth-config:add(authentication-name=user1,realm=ManagementRealm,allow-sasl-mechanisms=[DIGEST-MD5],credential-reference={clear-text=pass@123})
      /subsystem=elytron/authentication-context=auth-context:add(match-rules=[{match-host=localhost,authentication-configuration=auth-config}])
      

      2) use following http-interface:

      <http-interface http-authentication-factory="management-http-authentication">
          <http-upgrade enabled="true" sasl-authentication-factory="management-sasl-authentication"/>
          <socket-binding http="management-http"/>
      </http-interface>
      

      3) add user:

      ./bin/add-user.sh -u user1 -p pass@123 -r ManagementRealm
      

      4) deploy application for whoami operation (see attachments)

      5) access http://127.0.0.1:8080/AuthnContextApp/directCall. default-authentication-context is not set, so $local is displayed correctly

      6) set default-authentication-context

      /subsystem=elytron:write-attribute(name=default-authentication-context,value=auth-context)
      {"outcome" => "success"}
      

      7) access http://127.0.0.1:8080/AuthnContextApp/directCall again. Result is still $local.

      8) Reload server and access http://127.0.0.1:8080/AuthnContextApp/directCall again. Result is user1.

    Description

      In case when Elytron subsystem attribute default-authentication-context is changed (through write-attribute or undefine-attribute operation) then operation succeed and server is NOT set to reload-required state. However changed value is not used until server is reload.

      Before fixing, it must be decided whether change of default-authentication-context should require server reload or not. dlofthouse What should be correct behavior?
