Crowd:LDAP Customize User's Name

We have a user that we'd like to use their common name.

Example: John Howard Doe.

Which has Firstname = "John" Lastname = "Doe".

We would like to change the user's name to "Howard Doe" (Firstname = "Howard" Lastname = "Doe").

Is this possible? When editing name via Crowd, Crowd attempts to update the LDAP server and fails.

We have no control over what is in LDAP server.

Please advise.

You have to write crowd plugin to do this translation. For example, the user add listener is triggered, you can customize the name logic you listed above in the user add listener.

You can even add a servlet in your plugin to handle all once
