  1. Open the carbon.xml file in the following path: [PRODUCT_HOME]/repository/conf/carbon.xml
  2. Look for the commented out configuration EnableEmailUserName. Uncomment the configuration to enable email authentication.

    Code Block
    languagehtml/xml
    <EnableEmailUserName>true</EnableEmailUserName>
  3. Open the user-mgt.xml file found in the [PRODUCT_HOME]/repository/conf/ directory and add the following property under the relevant user store manager tag.
    This property determines the username validation tha will be enforced when the EnableEmailUserName option is enabled. 

    Note

    Note: The user-mgt.xml file consists of configurations for the primary user store. If you are trying to configure this for a secondary user store, modify the relevant user store configuration file found in the [PRODUCT_HOME]/repository/deployment/server/userstores directory instead.

    Code Block
    languagexml
    <Property name="UsernameWithEmailJavaScriptRegEx">^[\S]{3,30}$</Property>

    Open the identity-mgt.properties file found in the <IS_HOME>/repository/conf/identity/ directory and set the following property to true

    Info

    This step is required due to a known issue which prevents the confirmation codes from being removed after they are used, when email usernames are enabled. This occurs because the '@' character (and some special characters) are not allowed in the registry. To overcome this issue, enable hashed usernames when saving the confirmation codes by configuring the properties below.

    Code Block
    languagexml
    UserInfoRecovery.UseHashedUserNames=true

    Optionally, you can also configure the following property to determine which hash algorithm to use.

    Code Block
    languagexml
    UserInfoRecovery.UsernameHashAlg=SHA-1
  4.  

    Open the user-mgt.xml file found in the [PRODUCT_HOME]/repository/conf/ directory and add the following property under the relevant user store manager tag. 
    This property determines the username validation tha will be enforced when the EnableEmailUserName option is enabled. 

     

    Note

    Note: The user-mgt.xml file consists of configurations for the primary user store. If you are trying to configure this for a secondary user store, modify the relevant user store configuration file found in the [PRODUCT_HOME]/repository/deployment/server/userstores directory instead.

     

    Code Block
    languagexml
    <Property name="UsernameWithEmailJavaScriptRegEx">^[\S]{3,30}$</Property>
  5. Configure the following set of parameters in the user-mgt.xmlfile under the relevant user store manager tag, depending on the type of user store you are connected to (LDAP/Active Directory/ JDBC).

    Note

    Note: These properties have not been added by default for the JDBCUserStoreManager. Therefore, if you are using a JDBC-based user store, you need to add the properties marked with an asterisk *, to the user-mgt.xml file under the relevant user store manager tag. For any other type of user store, simply modify the values of the properties listed below.
