E-mail to individuals who broke the build is sent to wrong address

    Details

      Description

      First of all - this problem occurred, from what I can see in my mail archive, around March 1st. It could be related to the 1.452 Jenkins update.

      When a build fails the emails sent to individuals who broke the build is sent to the wrong address. The e-mails are sent to DomainName_UserName@DomainName.com instead of UserName@DomainName.com or even better Full.Email.Address@DomainName.com

      I see the following in the logs when a build fails:

      WARNING: Credential exception tying to authenticate against DomainName.com domain
      org.acegisecurity.BadCredentialsException: Authentication was successful but cannot locate the user information for DomainName_UserName
      

      So it seems that the active directory plugin is looking for the wrong username. It should look up "UserName", not "DomainName_UserName ". When I log in to Jenkins, I can see in the logs that it looks up "UserName" in AD, which is correct. I can also see that it is provided with all email addresses, full name etc. So I guess the AD plugin is working.

      I believe the problem is related to the DomainName\UserName format that Windows/Active Directory is using. Our SVN server is also using AD. When I do a "svn info" on any resource, the LastChanged Author is "DomainName\UserName".

      Could it be that the SVN plugin is "sanitizing" DomainName\UserName to DomainName_UserName?

        We have changed the SVN server to report only "UserName", not "DomainName\UserName". This is therefore no longer a problem for us, but I'll leave this open if others experience the same problem.

        This is happening at our Jenkins version 1.480.3 with the Active Directory plugin 1.30 and the Subversion Plugin 1.45.

        I'm sorry, but we do not see this issue anymore and have not for years. I'll therefore close this as cannot reproduce since I as reporter cannot reproduce it. Given the time that has passed since I reported this, I suspect your problem would have a different root cause.

        (If this is a very wrong issue tracking methodology, then please let me know. I'll then reopen it.)
