Hello Siva,

External to Crowd:

  • Most LDAP directory schemas specify the user and group names as case insensitive for matching and searching, but case preserving when storing the data and passing it back to the requestor.
  • Applications behave in different ways. Some, like JIRA and Confluence, insist on lower-case usernames and groups and store all user-related data in lower case.

Enforcing Lower-Case Usernames and Groups for an Application

In some cases you may wish to convert user and group names to lower case when passing them to an application. You can set an option for each application, as described in Enforcing Lower-Case Usernames and Groups for an Application. When the option is set, Crowd will convert upper-case and mixed-case information obtained from your user directory to lower case before passing the information to the application.
