Ability to display user name and not AD name (NUID) in the org.

Would like to see users real names in displays.

    DR listed should be 458575.  Client was looking for a column to be provided to display real name or to be able to search on real name instead of a generic id (NUID).

    This change was implemented into KP with DR 458757.

    The client request is to be able to update Bluemix not to search “mail” attribute in our AD. That is the reason people need to have a email address in our kp system. If they can eliminate mail as the search attribute and use their standard NUID (National User ID), that would simplify things.

    My client wants to use their enterprise National User ID (NUID) for their Bluemix environments instead of email. Can the user id be set to something customizable other than email? This capability may already there, but it is unclear how to implement.

    Could you provide some more context behind your idea? Where in particular is this AD name being displayed?
