Retrieve and accept user names in different format

0 Votes
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:

domain_name#server_name

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.

We will investigate this request. Agree that this is a "real life" issue for ING. However, this is the first request of it's type from the 1000+ AA customer community. Troy
