At the moment creating realms with the same name as a REST endpoint is possible, however doing so causes issues when trying to use the realm in the router. For examples see OPENAM-5309, OPENAM-5310.

Given that 'users' is a not uncommon name for a realm this is particularly likely to cause issues. It would be helpful if there was a warning in the documentation to state that these [users, groups, sessions, authentication, realms, policies, applications, etc] are unsuitable as realm names.
