How to allow users to login to PaperCut NG/MF with a username other than sAMAccountName
Use Username Aliasing to allow users to login with a different username, but keep the standard config of importing sAMAccountName as the primary identifier for users.
This does not prevent username clashes. If you’re experiencing username clashes in a multi-domain environment please reach out to email@example.com for assistance.
- Enable Username Aliasing.
- Select Options > Advanced.
- The Advanced page is displayed.
- In the Username Aliasing area, select the Enable username aliasing check box.
- Under Options → User/Group Sync → Sync source
- Set the Username alias as the LDAP attribute field in AD. For example “UserPrincipalName?” field (AD/LDAP).
Thatís it! Users will still be identified as their sAMAccountName, but will able to log in with a different username attribute. That should do the trick for adding the simple ability for users to log in using for example their UPN Username.
