EPM and TFS User Display Name Issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am having issues publishing activities into both EPM & TFS for few of the activities with resource with Middle Name.
    This is due to few of the resource-names in EPM and TFS are not matching.

    Example if user name is   John(First Name) Johnson(Last Name)
    In EPM this user display name is Johnson; John
    In TFS this user display name is Johnson; John
    In Active Directory user name is Johnson, John
    For this user we do not face any issue

    BUT

    If the user name is John(First Name) J(Middle Name) Johnson(Last Name)
    In EPM this user display name is Johnson; John; L.
    In TFS this user display name is Johnson; John; L
    In Active Directory user name is Johnson, John L
    For this user we are facing issue.

    We have observer because of full-stop at end for user with middle name, Because of this issue, if same MPP is used as client for TFS and EPM, duplicate resources are getting created.

    Can any one explain why "." is getting updated for name with middle name in EPM but not TFS.

    Regards
    Mahesh
