      Description

      NOTE: This suggestion is for Confluence Server. Using Confluence Cloud? See the corresponding suggestion.

      Problem Definition

      Special characters are not allowed in Confluence usernames as those users will not be able to create content, like spaces, but these user accounts can still be synchronized to Confluence via an external directory.

      The end result is it appears that there are no issues with the user accounts until the user attempts to create content.

      CONF-43494

      Suggested Solution

      Implement a fail when attempting to synchronize external accounts with special characters rather than letting the sync complete
