[slurm-users] External Authentication Integration with JWKS and RS256 Tokens

If you use AzureAD as your identity provider beware that their JWKS json
doesn't contain the alg parameter.
We opened an issue: https://bugs.schedmd.com/show_bug.cgi?id=16168 and it
is confirmed.
As a workaround you can use this jq query to add the alg to the jwks json
that you get from AzureAD:
curl -s https://login.microsoftonline.com/TENANT/discovery/v2.0/keys | jq
'.keys |= map(.alg="RS256")' > $TMPFILE

Hope this helps
