LDAP Authentication Fails Becuase Username Has Space

L2 Linker

Running into an issue with LDAP authentication.  I'am able to successfully login via LDAP authentication when the username does not contain a space.  However if the username contains a space (ie palo alto) the system logs show "User \'test\palo alto\' failed authentication.  Reason: Authentication profile not found for the user From: x.x.x.x". I recall finding some documentation on this issue which stated to add an "_", "-", or "." instead of the space for the username but that does not work.  Anyone else have a fix or workaround for this issue?



I tested a user name with space but this is 5.0.7 in the lab with Global protect,

Ldap worked fine.

using panos 6 I will replicate it soon

Panos, you got a user with a space in their username to authenticate via LDAP? Did you attempt to authenticate into the GUI?

Let me try it for webgui

I did not before

how do you create a user with space ?

it is not allowed here


You cannot, that is part of the issue.
