[xwiki-users] User Display Names in Acces Rights Table

2011-03-29 Thread Ramon Gomes Brandão - SERINT
Hi everybody, 

I'm using LDAP for login into XWiki (MS AD), it works very well. But there's 
something I'll need to change: when a user is editing some page's access 
rights, when he/she selects the User radio button, the list that appears is 
based on the user's objetc names (that came from the sAMAccountName LDAP 
field). Since our login field (and the username) is the registering number on 
our company, the user's list on the access rights appears as a bunch of 
numbers, and not the users' names, what makes it difficult to the author guess 
which one is to be granted the desired right. I would like that the 
first_name field (or another one from the user's object, mapped from LDAP) is 
shown on this list. I've been looking around the rightsUI.vm and 
usersandgroups.js, but could not figure out how to do this. I'm using XE 
3.0RC1. 

Any ideas?

Regards, 

Ramon Gomes Brandão

There is actually no way to configure which field is used to create
the user page right now, the uid is used to avoid collisions as much
as possible.

You could create an issue on jira asking for this feature but I think
noone will have time very soon to implement it. But If you have some
experience with java and LDAP and want to try implementing it I would
be glad answering any question you have.


 Any ideas?
