Description Sönke Schwardt-Krummrich univentionstaff 2014-12-03 09:45:16 CET
Fix this for UCS@school 4.0 too.

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #36450 +++

The string length of Windows (max. 20) and CSV import (unlimited) are not compatible. The user name is not truncated after 20 characters .

A suggestion would be that a warning message is displayed with the following content.
'The user name contains more than 20 characters.'

The CSV import module and the users wizard now check the length of usernames.
The username may not be longer than (20 - len(ucr get ucsschool/ldap/default/userprefix/exam)) characters.
Otherwise the CSV import module marks the cell in red. The users wizard shows an exclamation mark and a corresponding tooltip message.

The error messages also mention the maximum allowed username length, that is calculated depending on the UCR variable ucsschool/ldap/default/userprefix/exam.

By default, the UCR variable is empty and the prefix "exam-" is used.

As discussed with Stefan, the "error" message (red) should be rather a "warning" (yellow).

The username length is now enforced within the "Students (Schools)" wizards.
By setting ucsschool/ldap/check/username/lengthlimit=false the limitation can be disabled.

Please test both modules. And also the 3 states of the new UCR variable (undefined, true, false).
