      Hi Jitesh,

      This is a limitation of the authentication extension points. SSO plugins can't feed different login and name. When registering new users into database, Sonar uses the username as the login.
      Feel free to create a JIRA issue.

      Hi Simon,

      I have just got a request from my manager to change the value in the user id to the employee id instead of the employee name. As of now, when a new user is created, the login id is the name of the user. However, I need to change this to the employee id.
      I get the employee id when the user is successfully authenticated in my method. I wanted to know how I could set the value of the employee id as the login id for sonar for that user.

      This is kind of urgent as Sonar is going live in our organisation and we are trying to push it for more applications to take it up. Thus, all of these aspects will matter a lot.

      Thanks a lot for all your help till date. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

      Thanks & Regards,
      Jitesh Dundas
