#5085 Names with trailing space confuse FAS sign-up

Created 2 years ago by atodorov

= bug description =

The FAS sign-up page performs input data validation. When the Full name field contains a trailing white space we've got the following error message:

The following error(s) have occurred with your request:

human_name: You must include the full form of your names, not just initials. If your fullname really has one letter portions, you may check the override checkbox to submit this name.

This is confusing to the user because when they go back and look at the form details everything looks correctly. A trailing space isn't easy to spot and the user is left wondering what to do next.

Either we have to strip white space or produce a more meaningful error message.

Additional info:

I've seen this issue at the Fedora booth at FOSDEM today, when a new user tried to sign up to FAS.

I've opened upstream ticket: https://github.com/fedora-infra/fas/issues/141 on this issue.

Thanks for reporting it!
