    How to Update Supplier user name
    Content:

    We would like to update the supplier user account from Party number to Supplier Email id. We tried using the manage users option and we could not do that as it did not show the supplier user in the manage user screen. Any options to update this?

      In the security console, you can specify user categories.  By default, all new users are assigned to Default user category.  On each user category definition, you can specify the username generation rule.

        Hi Hong,

        We tried that option and that did not help. The user name generation rule is still taking the default rule only and it does not look the other categories rule.

        Thanks

          We have the same issue and didn't find any way to stop it. Also we have enabled SSO based authentication for all users with the username generation based on person ID. Our LDAP sync process would then update the usernames with network IDs of internal users, but the supplier user accounts are left with numeric person IDs to login with, it is just not user-friendly for our supplier users, but left with no choice for now.

          We are told that there are couple of ERs open for addressing this problem.

          Interested to see how other customers are handling.

            I agree with you Swami. I found the below notes which turns to be an ER worked by prod dev.
