This is just a proposal so far, it hasn't been accepted and needs further discussion.
Header-based auth requires a separate implementation using frontend redirection.
- Always use frontend redirection
- Add support for header-based auth using FE redirection
- Not support OAuth w/ header-based auth initially
Chosen option: Not support OAuth w/ header-based auth initially
- Faster first version
- We can easily add this later
- We are OK with not supporting header-based auth (at least initially) since we think that it'll be a very rare usecase
