Hey, thank you both for your feedback.

i figured this is not going to work -> finding nothing on google is usually a bad sign but now i know for sure.

I guess i'm starting to look into scripts to automate user creation / deletion but this might be difficult in our infrastructure.

@Miles O'Neal Yeah i need to create some scripts to deal with those thinks too but this is already pretty streamlined here.

@Sambwise I honestly don't think that any company out there will by more licenses of anything just to make the work for IT a bit easier unless it's wasting noticeable time or resources from IT.
IT will just be more annoyed with a software that is cumbersome to service and look more closely for alternatives. At least in my experience.

Cheers,
Dennis

Hey Sambwise,

thanks for your feedback!

Technically i can totally understand that the usernames are part of the database and therefore have the same case sensitivity setting.

My problem is that most user don't understand that. They get a username and password from IT and while the username contains some uppercase letters ldap doesn't care for that so on all our tools they can type the username however they like with Perforce being the only exception. That leads to a lot of confusion i would actually say that 80% of our new users call me saying the password doesn't work while instead they typed in their username wrong. This is what i'm trying to solve.

I'm not sure i understand your idea with LDAP triggers do you mean that if we user ldap user auto creation that we can change the case of the username coming from ldap to a all lowercase version in perforce for example?

Thanks a lot!

Cheers,
Dennis
