User mapping to WikiUsers doesn't seem to be working.
I'm having some trouble with user mapping using FosWiki
. I'm currently trialing an upgrade of our TWiki environment which uses a Postgres database for authentication.
For now though, I am trying foswiki with the default authentication until I can get user mapping to work.
I have looked through a lot of the documentation, but I still cannot get my problem resolved. I have a user named Sysadmin, who has a login name set as sys, just as a test run, however when I login as sys, I am not forwarded to "Sysadmin" but rather Main.sys and my login on the lefthand side still shows as "sys".
This is my entry in the WikiUsers
SysAdmin - sys - 04 Dec 2014 - 16:28
I've had quite a good read through the documentation but haven't had much luck finding why it doesn't want to map to "SysAdmin", but any ideas would be very much appreciated.

What are your settings for
Note that the formatting of WikiUsers
is very particular. It needs to be kept in alpha order, and each line needs to be a bullet.

Ah... in looking at your example above, I didn't notice it before. The wikiname has to be listed as a simple text "WikiName", not a link in
[[link to some place][Link text]]
If that's what you have in the text view of your WikiUsers
topic, then that's the issue.
So your example should be:
* SysAdmin - sys - 04 Dec 2014 - 16:28
[[http://cat.nta-monitor.com/foswiki/bin/view/Main/SysAdmin][SysAdmin]] - sys - 04 Dec 2014 - 16:28
- It's not a bullet
- It's a link, not a WikiName
