    Details

      Description

      Description:

      Liferay provides a portal property for users to specify which special characters are allowed to be used when creating a new user screen name. But, this property is not working as expected for special characters, such as apostrophe(').

      Steps to Reproduce:

      1) Setup Liferay DXP
      2) Add the following property in portal-ext.properties file:

      users.screen.name.special.characters=-._\\'

      3) Startup Liferay.
      4) Navigate to Control Panel>Users>Users and Organizations
      5) Click Add icon in the bottom right corner to add a new User.
      6) Create a User with a Screen Name that contains an apostrophe (') EX: test'

      Expected Result: User is created.
      Actual Result: The following messages are received and User is not created:

      "Incorrect username or password. Please try again."
      "The screen name you requested must produce a valid friendly URL."
