Comment 1 Juan Hernández 2014-09-04 11:49:44 UTC
The RESTAPI puts in the "user_name" element the long name of the user followed by @ and the domain name. In this case it looks like the backend populating the login name incorrectly.

Comment 2 Alon Bar-Lev 2014-09-04 12:15:59 UTC
Yair, it seems that legacy provider adds @domain to principal?


Comment 3 Alon Bar-Lev 2014-09-04 12:23:27 UTC
I think I know why it happens.

This is because we put the principal within the user name within the user table now.

So the restapi assumes this is the user name, although the user name may be out of date and never actually updated.

Is there a reason for the legacy provider to have principal name with @suffix?

If there is, options:
1. have two fields in database one for the legacy user name, the other for principal, the principal is to be used at ui.
2. revert and put the legacy user name within database, will make ui less readable but...

Comment 4 Alon Bar-Lev 2014-09-04 12:24:57 UTC
Another option... remove the @xxxx append to user name of the restapi?

Comment 5 Nelly Credi 2014-09-04 12:31:01 UTC
BTW it also happens in CLI API
