Folks, interesting thing came up while integrating Redmine with the AD. As I made a "create on the fly"account, I got a error message from Redmine about the last name and email being blank and the first name had the full name in it. It was easy enough to modify on Redmine but it seems that the Nethserver User Creation interface put the “name” into the “givenName” field on the Active Directory Property variable. Proper AD properties appear to include:
givenName (first name, currently full name appears to be stored there as a whole)
title (Job Title)
there are a few more but these might be basic to many offices.
Would be useful (and more Pro looking) for people using the AD authentication to have the first name (givenName), last name (sN), and email (mail) entered and stored in separate fields (perhaps only on AD mode) so they can be used by other systems smart enough to utilize these AD field values. It is cool that other open source programs can make use of these values.
