When you are adding a user, you have the possibility to change a
username which we provide default to.
In CLI its pretty easy:
# ipa user-add --first=Foo --last=Bar
User login [fbar]: barfoo
Added user "barfoo"
User login: barfoo
First name: Foo
Last name: Bar
Full name: Foo Bar
Display name: Foo Bar
Home directory: /home/barfoo
GECOS field: Foo Bar
Login shell: /bin/sh
Kerberos principal: bar...@idm.lab.bos.redhat.com
In current WebUI version you can change the default user name by
clicking on the username field and changing the value.

Options with multiple values should be entered the following way:
