is there a way to disable the case sensitivity in Confluence synched with LDAP

We use Confluence 5.3.1 and synchronize to our Active Directory so that every new user that logs in for the first time is created to the Confluence Internal Directory using the AD configured directory.

When the user logs in for the first time Confluence fetches the user atributes from the AD database, including the user name.

So if the user logs in the first time using JorBal it Confluence will then store JORBAL because that is how AD stores the user name.

Later if the user tries again using the same user as he tried the first time "JorBal" he will get this error:

java.lang.IllegalStateException: Unable to rename user JORBAL to JorBal

So, is there a way to configure this so that the username is NOT case sensitive when logging in?

Thanks so much!

Hi Jorge

It seems like you have bump into this known bug report in here:

The good news is that this bug behaviour has been resolved in Confluence version 5.3.4

Thanks Daryl
