Error description

  • Problem
    Managing large lists of users whos names containg Chinese (or I
    assume Thai, Korean or Japanese) is very difficult due to the
    absence of 2 features :
    
     - the ordering of usernames alphabetically (this is
    understandable given that there is no order to the Chinese
    alphabet)
     - the ability to quickly select the first user beginning with a
    given letter by typing that letter on the keyboard (this is also
    understandable given that characters in Chinese names are not
    the same as those on a Chinese keyboard)
    
    To Reproduce
    Create and attempt to manage a very large list of Chinese users.
    
    Possible Workarounds
    None
    
    
    The Chinese support engineer offered 2 suggestions as ways to
    fix this:
    
     - provide a filter box as is done for LDAP user managent
     - provide the ability to translate multiple Chinese keyboard
    strokes into a single character, then highlight the first
    username beginning with that character.

    ****************************************************************
    Defect was occurring because there is no ordering for multi
    byte characters (Chinese and Japanese)
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code has been changed and we have a search user option
    in manage users dialog so that user can type full name of
    user.
