Lowercase surname using RewriteWikiNames

In our LDAP catalog users are represented using following format: "Firstname SURNAME".

I would like to change surname lettering to Propercase using RewriteWikiNames.

What hash mapping rules should I use?


In that case you don't need a rewrite rule at all. Just list the two attributes in {WikiNameAttribute}, e.g.
$Foswiki::cfg{Ldap}{WikiNameAttribute} = 'givenName, sn';

The values of these two attributes will be concatenated and in case you enabled {NormalizeWikiNames} will these be wikified to form proper WikiWords.

Michael, thx for answering, but I have exactly the same WikiNameAttribute configuration from the start, and still receive DanielKOWNACKI as username.

I must mention that in my old 1.0 installation I somehow fixed it long long time ago...
