Welcome Page - Full name vs. username

Hi all,

in UI Options can the personalized greeting be configured

"Display user's full name (if available) or username on their welcome page."

Whe I activiate this option, I only can see the username on welcome page.

We use MS Active Directory as authentication server.

Doese anyone what I have to do that the full name is shown?
In AD the full name is available for the specific user.

Re: Welcome Page - Full name vs. username

That is an interesting check box. i have never been able to get it to work unless I am authenticating a user against the local DB. It works fine then. If you are using LDAP you can add the "name" value to the server catalog and then create a custom notification message at the bottom of the UI Options page - something like:

Howdy <userAttr.name>

Works just fine. Never figured out how to get display name to show up either way if directly using AD as the Auth server.

Re: Welcome Page - Full name vs. username

Thanks for your reply.

The filed "name" is already available in server catalog.

I can also see in policy trace that this field is deliverde from the LDAP server.

Unfortunately it is not presented on the welcome page.

Re: Welcome Page - Full name vs. username

I am not talking about using the option "display users full name" - as I said I can never get that to work except with local auth users.

If you enable the custom notification box slightly below that option and enter in a value as I refered to in my previous post that will work just fine. I do that regularily.
