OAuth Client Details changed for CF CLI


Madhura Bhave
 

Hi All,

The oauth client with client ID *cf* is meant to be used by the CF CLI for
communicating with the UAA using password grant type. There are default
values for this client here:
https://github.com/cloudfoundry/cf-release/blob/master/templates/cf-properties.yml#L337-L344

We have noticed that this client has been used by applications other than
the CF CLI using the implicit grant type. We have decided that this client
should not have implicit grant type and therefore this will not work going
forward. Along with this change, we will also remove `autoapprove: true`
for this client. For anyone using this client with implicit grant type,
please consider making a separate client for that purpose.

Thanks,
Jeremy & Madhura
