When tagging users in discussions (@user), only the login name is displayed. Not everyone knows everyone else's login name, because they're based on employee key in our system due to SSO.

It would be very helpful to (also) display the actual Dataiku name as mentioned at the top of a user's profile when tagging.

    Are you using LDAP integration? If so this may be happening because you haven't set the Display name attribute in your LDAP configuration. If you are using AD via LDAP this should be set to displayName.

    Thanks for the quick reply!

    Should this be set in Dataiku or somewhere external?

    In Dataiku settings we have it set to SSO with SAML protocol

    OK if you are using SSO/SAML it looks to me that you just need to update the display name in the user's local user account:

    Ok, thanks. I'll send out IT team a note. Then we can consider this request already fulfilled, I think

    Any update on this? We are on 12.6.1 and the "Display name" is not consistenly used.

    For example, if I tag someone in a new project discussion, he will get two notifications:

    {login1} mentioned you in project {project name}

    {login2}]({login2})?


    {display name 1} created a discussion on project {project name}

    {login2}]({login2})?


    I would expect to use the display name consistently like so:

    {display name 1} mentioned you in project {project name}

    {display name 2}]({login2}) ?


    {display name 1} created a discussion on project <project name}

    {display name 2}]({login2}) ?


    Any idea if this will be fixed anytime soon?
