Option to display user's real name

Issue #533 new
vawagner created an issue

We use LDAP to manage our user accounts. Unfortunately our company as a username format that is very unfriendly to our repository admins. The format is the letter 'E' followed by a 5-digit employee number, e.g. 'E12345'. Our repository admins have to follow strict legal requirements for making sure the right people have access to repositories, so they hate using the LDAP accounts because you can't tell at a glance who E12345 actually is.

If possible, we would hugely appreciate making it possible to display a user's real name everywhere the username is displayed, e.g. under Permissions for a repo. Something like:

Valerie Wagner (E12345) or E12345 (Valerie Wagner)

would be hugely useful. We see this format when selecting a user for addition to a repository, but then only the username after they are added.

    Hello, is there any news on this topic? I encountered the same problem. There is a "displayName" property for the users, but I don't see that it is used somewhere.

    Any help, workaround or fix is greatly appreciated!
