Realm clients

For each realm created within the Manager (via UI, provisioning code or REST API) a client called openremote is automatically created and all the roles defined in ClientRole are automatically added to this client.

Service users

Service users are actually implemented using Keycloak clients with Service account enabled, this creates an 'invisible' user account with a username in the format service-account-${clientId} (invisible because they don't show in the user list in the Keycloak admin console). The client that is generated when a service user is created will also have the all the roles defined in ClientRole added to this client.
