Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
The `add-user` utility in previous versions of JBoss EAP 6 would display a misleading error message when an invalid username was entered. The messaged stated that a username must be alphanumeric, when in fact the utility had been modified to accept a subset of special symbols in usernames. The error message has been reconstructed to contain the list of acceptable symbols and users now see a more accurate error message when an invalid username is entered.

Darran, can you please look into this or reassign if you're not the right person for this?

Comment 2 Darran Lofthouse 2014-03-18 18:22:26 UTC
After further investigation this is intended behaviour, a small subset of symbols are now accepted in the username.  I am updating the error message on an invalid username to reflect this.

Verified on EAP 6.3.0.DR6.
