How do I append the domain to the username at logon?

We had three domains hooked up to Jira for user authentication:


Now that we removed two of them we'd like to make the logon process a bit more convenient to the users we have left. The goal is to let them log in with "<username>" instead of "<username>@xxx.some.domain" but since changing the username (on db level) isn't an option we'd like to append the domain part to the username field input prior to sending it to the server for authentication.

Any bright ideas? ;)

Many thanks,

If you're comfortable with writing Java code, you could write a custom Seraph authenticator that manipulates the username during the authentication process.

Thank you Joseph for your quick response.

I was actually hoping that someone could tell me exactly where and how to alter the code as I don't have any java coding experience. Assumed it would be as simple as appending the domain to the username variable somewhere.

Perhaps I'm asking too much ;)
