Would like to know if we can customize the login page so that the users can login to confluence using their email address rather than username.
May I know if you configure Confluence to integrate with your LDAP server? If that is the case, you could configure Confluence to acknowledge your user's e-mail address as the user-name by inputting e-mail address parameter as "User Name Attribute".
This way, Confluence will use the registered user's e-mail address as username to access Confluence.
Hope it helps.
I agree this would be nice. We do get tickets from time to time from people thinking their company credentials aren't working when really it is just that they entered their full email address instead of just their user name. Switching to use the email address would just result in people having trouble the other way around. Allowing for both options would be ideal.
I don't know if this is still relevant for anyone, but I've written a plugin that allows you to login with either you username or email in Confluence and JIRA Server
I hope its what you need
Aviram, thanks for exploring this via a 3rd party solution. We are currently evaluating the add-on you mentioned but have encountered a few issues (e.g. with the add-on email does work as username but the original username no longer does). That's off topic for this post but I'm still mentioning it here as the related support page (http://www.support.wikistrat.com/) is currently returning a 404. For those of us interested in the add on how can we interact more with the developers?
