also if it helps anyone:

if you want to put the username/id whatever you are storing as the subject in jwt onto the request (so that your secured endpoints know which user is accessing):

in AuthorizationFilter#doFilterInternal(): request.setAttribute("username", authentication.getPrincipal());

in ur controllers: public @RequestBody ReturnType yourMethod(@RequestAttribute("username") String username) { ... }
