Topic's author displayed with _2e in name

Hi, when I specify columns="Author" the author's name is all lower case, and separated by a "_2e". Is this normal behaviour?

Hi Trial, how is JQGridPlugin configured, i.e. what's the value of $Foswiki::cfg{JQGridPlugin}{DefaultConnector}?

Try switching it to dbcache after having installed DBCachePlugin.

How is your user mapper configured, i.e. what's the value of $Foswiki::cfg{Register}{AllowLoginName}?

Hi Michael, $Foswiki::cfg{JQGridPlugin}{DefaultConnector} is set to "search", and $Foswiki::cfg{Register}{AllowLoginName} is ticked. For your reference our usernames are in the style joe.blogs, mapping to wikiname JoeBlogs. This is so that it looks like their regular windows login. Thanks for the tip on DBCachePlugin, I'll try it out.

Hi Guys, I have a similar situation and setup like the author of this topic. So here are my information:

  • Authentication is done by LdapContrib against an ActiveDirectory 2012 R2
  • Our login names are read from "mailNickname" which is always Firstname.Lastname sometimes Firstname.Lastname-Lastname
  • $Foswiki::cfg{Ldap}{WikiNameAttributes} = 'cn'; - the AD attribute "cn" is always: Firstname Lastname and sometimes: Firstname.Lastname-Lastname - tried it with "givenName,sn": no change
  • $Foswiki::cfg{Ldap}{NormalizeWikiNames} = 1;
  • $Foswiki::cfg{UserMappingManager} = 'Foswiki::Users::LdapUserMapping'; is set correctly
  • $Foswiki::cfg{PasswordManager} = 'Foswiki::Users::LdapPasswdUser'; is set correctly
  • Tried changing $Foswiki::cfg{Register}{AllowLoginName} - no change
  • Tried changing $Foswiki::cfg{Ldap}{NormalizeLoginNames} - no change
  • $Foswiki::cfg{Ldap}{CaseSensitiveLogin} = 0;

And here are the problems that I currently have:

  1. Author names in topics on my wiki are displayed with a _2e inbetween the first and last name. This is propably because Foswiki is displaying the unnormalized username here instead of the WikiName.
  2. Users can log in with both upper case user names and lower case user names but when logging in with upper case user names group memberships are not honored/matching so the user has no rights.

Apprechiate your time!
