When I login with Ldap, WIKINAME returns the loginname instead of the wikiname. This could be reletad to Item6464, Item6362, Item4920. I looked at the problem and the following fixed it for me:

             $this->{cUID2WikiName}->{$cUID} =~ s/$TWiki::cfg{NameFilter}//go;

It seems that a cache is filled with the loginname instead of the wikiname and later only the cache is used instead of the getWikiName() from the LdapContrib.

Thank you Erhard for the report and proposed fix. Is this on TWiki-5.0.0 as reported? FYI, we have tested 100 extensions for TWiki 5.0 compatibility, the LdapContrib is pending testing.

What {UserMappingManager} do you use with {PasswordManager} set to TWiki::Users::LdapUser? With LdapUser I usually use the TWiki::Users::TWikiUserMapping for user mapping.

-- TWiki:Main.PeterThoeny - 2010-07-26

Yes, it is 5.0.0.

$TWiki::cfg{UserMappingManager} = 'TWiki::Users::LdapUserMapping';
$TWiki::cfg{PasswordManager} = 'TWiki::Users::LdapUser';

With this settings I see the LDAP-Groups in TWikiGroups, but not the Users in TWikiUsers, but If this is intended, its ok. I'm quite satisfied how the LDAP-integration works with the proposed patch.

-- TWiki:Main.ErhardSiegl - 2010-08-02

FYI, I had the same problem, and Erhard's fix worked for me as well, on a fresh install of TWiki 5.0.1.

-- TWiki:Main.JohnWorsley - 2010-11-01

FYI -- I have the same problem, but with

$TWiki::cfg{UserMappingManager} = 'TWiki::Users::TWikiUserMapping'; TWiki::cfg{PasswordManager} = 'TWiki::Users::HtPasswdUser';

but the fix doesn't help. moving from 4.1.2 to 5.0.0.
