users with special characters RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    We have users in AD whose names contain Turkish characters like "ü", "ö"; 

    for example, samaccountname = Özge

    user can login using "Özge" or "Ozge". (It is creating problems with logs/reports...)

    Is this by design, if so, is there any docs referencing this behavior? I could not locate any.

    Thanks for help in advance....

    Yes, that is by design. Umlauts are treated as their less pointy
