Specifying the account names when authenticating via LDAP

See original GitHub issue


Currently I have enabled LDAP authentication. The users are logging in with their email address, e.g.

When they successfully login, I noticed that the accounts that are automatically created for them are not user1. I would like it to be as so.

Which property in application.conf should I specify for this? Thanks.

In the meantime I did a quick fix on my end. I changed this line in the para-server module. (line 115) String name = email.split("@")[0];

As Spring has limited getter methods, I am just splitting the username out from the email address and using that instead. Ideally Spring would have provided a .getMailNickname() or a .getsAMAccountName() to access the values directly.

Added option = true | false - be sure to put it in your Scoold config file.
