OAuth Client/RS and Authorization Server don't work together on the same BIG-IP system. These two features cannot be configured on the same BIG-IP system, and have to be configured on separate BIG-IP systems. Beginning with version 13.0.0, APM supports OAuth Client and RS functionality as one feature. APM also supports AS (an F5-specific implementation) as another feature. These two features are dependent on each other in that OAuth Client/RS communicate with AS for authorization decisions.
APM OAuth Client/RS and AS cannot communicate each other when configured on the same BIG-IP system.
When APM OAuth client/RS and AS are configured on the same BIG-IP system.
Configure OAuth ClientRS on one BIG-IP system and AS on another BIG-IP system.
Now OAuth Resource Server (RS), Authorization Server (AS), and Client role can be used simultaneously in the same BIG-IP.
