    Description

      PseudoAuthenticationHandler currently only gets username from the "user.name" parameter. If there is an expired auth token in the request, the token is ignored (without returning any error back to the client). Further, if anonymous is enabled, the client will be authenticated as anonymous.

      The above behavior seems non-desirable since the client does not want to be authenticated as anonymous.
