[RFE] Enforce user names matching a pattern
Last modified: 2014-08-21 11:32:00 EDT
Description of problem:
For users of multiple organizations, keeping the namespace of the user names sane can be potentially fun. Each organization is responsible for their own account creation possibly stepping on the namespace of another organization that the first has no knowledge of.
I'd like to see a feature for forcing new user names to match a regular expression. For example, all new usernames must be in the form of a RFC compliant email address.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I'm working with RHN Satellite 5.3.0
We appreciate the RFE but we are unlikely to implement this at any time in the foreseeable future. This would be a useful feature but we don't have enough users requesting this be added directly into Satellite's feature set to justify implementation.
I'm going to close it out rather than leave it open. If you feel we should re-consider feel free to re-open the bug.
