Just wanted to make sure I do this right. I am making a new site
require everyone to login, using their email address as the username.
It seems I need to take these steps to get this to work with IC 5.4.0:
1. Set "UserDB indirect_login email" in catalog.cfg
2. Make sure the email column is a UNIQUE index
3. Upgrade UserDB.pm to latest CVS
4. Set "UserDB default username_email 1" and
"UserDB default ignore_case 1" in catalog.cfg
Does that look right? I want to be sure before upgrading UserDB.pm,
because I have other catalogs on this installation which use the
standard username method.
Side note: according to:
it looks like users can't change their username (email). Is that
still the case?
