Use full email address instead of user name as user login

Hello everyone!

The actual question itself: how can I use full address, i.e. jdoe@example.com instead of just jdoe while login to Kopano WebApp from UCS Univention App Center?
Full email is more logical and convinience as for my user experience.

Hi @Twissell,

this can be influenced through ldap_loginname_attribute in ldap.cfg. You can set it on ucs via

ucr set kopano/cfg/ldap/ldap_loginname_attribute=mail (from memory, untested)

Hello!

Just tested on VM, nope that setting doesn’t work at all :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

Did you restart kopano-server afterwards?

Yes, I did. Login procedure gets broken if I execute

ucr set kopano/cfg/ldap/ldap_loginname_attribute=mail

It works with “short” username only after defaults settings has been setup.

ucr set kopano/cfg/ldap/ldap_loginname_attribute=uid

The right command is

ucr set kopano/cfg/ldap/ldap_loginname_attribute=mailPrimaryAddress
as far as I can test :slight_smile:
