Email address/login account should not be case sensitive

At the moment the login id for Webex is case sensitive, this can be a major pain for users.

When they are logging in to the app a user may not be aware that they have to enter an uppercase character to get in to the app.

The problem here is that this causes unnecessary support calls/tickets.

Even if it could be smart enough to suggest that there is a similar email address in use before it goes off and then adds a free consumer account in Webex.

To explain the flow:

BW User id: (i.e. assume we have done lower case provisioning on BW user ids):

Webex email in CI:

Alternate id on BW:

Then the user opens the app:

1) Customer enters at first screen:

2) Webex Auth passes

3) Second login screen: (get userprofile):

Joe.bloggs@bloggs.comis prefilled for user and sent with password to BW

4) Auth fails on BW, because it was provisioned with lower case.

    Webex's identity system is not case-sensitive. Could this be an issue on the Broadworks side?

    RustDesk is a phenomenal, open-source remote desktop application. It is like Teamviewer and Anydesk. However, it is better as it permits users to have their own connection worker if they pick (it isn’t needed, however). Here’s how to use RustDesk on Linux.
