    Allow backoffice login with name, not email [7.7.1]

    I have been using Umbraco v7.6.x for several months. I have always logged in using the "name", not the "email" for the user account.

    In 7.7.1, it seems I need to use the email address of the backoffice user. Can this be changed so users can login with their username instead?

    After changing this setting, I cannot create a "username" for users. Typing a new username and clicking "save" does not generate an error, but the username resets/defaults back to the email address.

    Can usernames be changed in the database? Or does the usernameIsEmail flag need to be enabled before creating a new user?

    Ah yes. Sorry, this will be fixed in 7.7.2, that's a big currently!

    FYI, here's the issue with the pull request Sebastiaan added: http://issues.umbraco.org/issue/U4-10435

    As a temporary fix, once you set this in config > umbracoSettings.config

    <settings>
      <security>
        <usernameIsEmail>false</usernameIsEmail>
      </security>
    </settings>
    

    you can modify the Umbraco DB directly to create a userLogin. In SQL-Server this would look like:

    UPDATE umbracoUser SET userLogin='desiredLoginName' WHERE userEmail='email@email.com';
    

    Note: I am not advocating directly modifying the Umbraco DB! This is just a potential workaround.
