      Description

      We find that we want all our users to share the same alias.

      Our active directory names are of the form first-initial+last-name but our email addresses are first-name.last-name. We use the first part of the email address for user aliases on all our applications.
      Example

      AD Name Email Address Application Alias
      btest broseph.test@example.com broseph.test

      We'd like to have an option for automatic aliasing, based on existing user data and/or regex. It'd be best if these could be specified at the application level.

      Workaround
      We added a postgres trigger to "cwd_membership" to update aliases after a user membership is added.
