The issue you are facing:

I set up LDAP authentication, everything works fine, but it seems like the server, OpenAM I guess, doesn’t have a unique attribute for First Name and Surname, they are splitted in “cn” and “sn”.

My question is, is there any way to combine two attributes in LDAP advanced setup for Display Name (e.g. “cn+sn”)?

I also tried with 2nd User Display Name Field in Advanced section, but I get something like Name (Surname), how can I get rid of brackets?

Please help.

Thx a lot. Mx.
