Retrieve and accept user names in different format

Status : New Idea

This is the re-creation of an old idea:

Some applications/systems use naming schema different then simple username. Good example might be FUDO running in "bastion" mode. In that case username consists of two parts and looks like:


which of course is not correct from NAAF point of view and results in "User not found". Simply cutting the part from the "#" would do the trick.

So there is a need for a recipe for getting the username from the given input data.

New attribute of user repository defining additional username format(s), eg. with regexp: ([^#]+)#.* in this case, or something similar would solve the problem quickly and elegantly.

this is a real life problem. It applies to an environment of about 8,000 NAAF users.
