I have a Jenkins instance connected to a directory service for authentication. I configured the display name and email attributes. I have a build checking out a Subversion repository over HTTP (via Apache), which authenticates with the same LDAP.
I expected Jenkins to pull the user from the commit metadata (the
svn:author property), map the display name to show in the Changes screen, and map the email address for sending build notifications.
I'm having trouble with both:
Jenkins only shows the user's display name after they log in once. For example, my user name is
anthony.mastreanand my display name is
Anthony Mastrean. My changes were linked as
anthony.mastreanuntil I logged in.
Jenkins never pulls the email address. It's has this in my user configuration and in the log for the email notifier:
