this question has been asked already some time ago (https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/5639/ldap-login-with-username-either-userprincipalname-or-samaccountname), but the given solution does not seem to work properly, because it will double the amount of Confluence users for us.
So, let me raise this question again: is there any way, for Confluence 5.1, to have users login with either the userPrincipalName (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the sAMAccountname (user.name)?
Thanks in advance!
the sAMAccountName is only for compatiblity in an active directory for pre windows and old login style DOMAIN\USERNAME. the samaaccount has some limits (e.g 20 chars). we want have one login for all and not here you must use the old login name and here use the UPN.
but i have found that conflunce support UPN! so my problem is solved :D
It was the means of auth pre-Windows 2000, but it has not been deprecated or rendered obsolete. It is still fully supported and will continue to be supported. They have since added more functionality with UPN, but sAMAccountNam is not going t be removed and is still a valid auth method for all current versions of Windows.
Yes, you certainly can use UPN for Confluence. It's just a matter of saying which filed you want to use in the user directory setup. I think the original question though was wondering about use both for login purposes not either or.
