Are there any known issues with Zulu and external authentication?

I'm having an issue with calendars where the records and privileges use Get ( AccountName ) - I'm guessing that there may be an issue due to users not always typing their username the same way (as "A User" and "auser" both get accepted by external authentication), but I have yet to figure out the details.

Any experiences/suggestions are welcome!

We're just using the XML Custom Web Publishing protocol, so should be no problem having the credentials authenticate against the external server. It is the actual FileMaker Account that authenticates, so Get(AccountName) should not be variable, although I imagine Get(UserName) certainly could be.

Let me know if that helps!

Good to know - and I've been able to confirm that this isn't the issue I'm having.
