New user created with random numbers at the end of username

Hi SonarQube community,

  • SonarQube Version 8.7.1 (build 42226)
  • What are you trying to achieve:
    Create new users without any random numbers at the end of the username

I was using SonarQube 7.9.5 and everything was working great, all the new users were properly created with the same name and login.
But after upgrading to 8.7.1, when an user login for the first time and that account is created, 5 random numbers are added to the end of the login field:


The login way (external_identity_provider) we are using is SAML.
Is there a reason this is happening, and a way to avoid those random numbers at the end of the login field?
Thank you very much!
Greetings, Cristian.

Hello @cristian_lazaro ,

First of all welcome to the community!

This behaviour is expected with the change we have introduced here: .

Unfortunately there is no way to prevent that, this is a default behaviour when users are authenticated with external systems.

Could you explain what exactly problem it is causing on your side?
