Show the name instead of username


We are using SSO as our primary authentication for the CP4D project. Our SSO is configured to authenticate with something we call NISS (this in our business is considered confidential information ). Still, when using this ID as authentication, It is seen publicly as the Username in the platform (seen in user management and WSL permission WKC permission assignment). We want to request a feature to separate the SSO authenticate ID and the Username displayed in the platform.

In Catalogs, the Name is displayed as we pretend here to be all over the platform. It's easier to identify to who an asset belongs if we see the person's name instead of a code ( being it confidential or not )

Kind regards,

    This ticket as a feature would be quite disruptive and there arent any customer who have reported this requirement due to limitation on the Idp. However, We would work with you to resolve this issue by looking at few other options and workaround.
