Issue non-JWT access tokens for requests with old CDI versions


This is just a proposal so far, it hasn't been accepted and needs further discussion.

Context and Problem Statement#

Since our access token structure will change drastically, the backend SDKs will need to be updated to match.

Considered Options#

  • Drop support for older CDIs.
  • Issue old access tokens for requests with older CDIs

Decision Outcome#

We should issue old access tokens for requests with older CDIs:

  • Requiring a simultanious upgrade of multiple components (core + BE SDK in this case) should be avoided if possible.
  • Backend SDKs can support both versions, but this can provide an easier upgrade path.
