How to define users displayname for AccessPoint site (ticket login)

Hi!

I successfully implemented a custom login-page, which uses "WebTicket"-Login.

After a successfull login i can see the users loginname at the upper right corner in the accesspoint.

I wonder if its possible to "pass" a displayname for the current user? I know that a user can manually change the displayname via the profile link.. but: Is it possible to predefine the displayname via the ticket or somewhere else (accesspoint url..)?

Alternatively: Where does QlikView store the Information, when a user changes the displayname manually - and is it possible to edit

this global (file to edit?)

Had anyone this this requirement before?

Thanks for any hint!

did you try to use section access?

you can use from osuser() function.

Hi!

Thank's for your response!

I'm using section acces, however i can not imagine how osuser() will help me at this point.

By default the AccessPoint prints the users LoginName which is used for the ticketlogin at the custom loginpage

Can you describe me that in a greater detail? May i dont get you.

I have to say that the AccessPoints are not members of the AD-Domain. So i have to provide the DisplayName in a different manner. (maybe in the ticketrequest xml?) - (A ActiveDirectory-Service-Connector is working on the QlikViewServer)
