#2397 Auth fails when space in username is replaced with character set by override_default_whitespace
Closed: Fixed None Opened 6 years ago by jhrozek.

Ticket was cloned from Red Hat Bugzilla (product Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6): Bug 1127278

Description of problem:

When SSSD new feature "override_default_whitespace" is set, it replaces white
space from usernames/groupnames with the configured character, lets say
_(underscore). So upon lookup user "Harry Potter" becomes "Harry_Potter". In
this case, user login fails when auth is conducted without spaces, ie username
is "Harry_Potter, however auth works fine with space, ie when username is
"Harry Potter".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create an ldap user name with space, say "Harry Potter".
2. Set override_default_whitespace = _ in sssd.conf
3. Login with and without space in user name, you will see that auth fails when
username is "Harry_Potter".

Actual results:
Auth fails.

Expected results:
Auth should succeed.
