Use short usernames

Usage Administrators can choose to configure the plugin to create shorter WordPress user names e.g. john.doe instead of (a user's Azure AD / Microsoft 365 user principal name e.g.) john.doe@your-tenant.onmicrosoft.com or john.doe@your-domain.com. 

When you instruct the plugin to create shorter user names, it will ignore the everything right from the '@' and the '@' itself e.g. john.doe@your-tenant.onmicrosoft.com becomes simply john.doe. 

Please note that if you check this option, it is recommend that you also change / update the order to match user fields (see https://docs.wpo365.com/article/109-update-order-for-matching-users). By default the plugin does not try to match users by their shorter user name.

Important There is a risk involved with using shorter user names when you have multiple users with the same user name e.g. john.doe@your-tenant.onmicrosoft.com, john.doe@your-domain.com or even an existing WordPress user with john.doe as his login name. In this case the WPO365 plugin may make a mistake when it tries to find a matching user. 

Alternatively, you can update the Order for matching users and remove the option to match users by their login name.
