    Ok, so here's the username and name, anonymized: FIRST_NAME_L39 (FIRST NAME L'LASTNAME)

    Looks as if the name somehow gets escaped, before the username gets generated.

    ' is: ' i.e. single quotation mark (apostrophe), same as '.

    I'll try to reproduce. I think it's related to usernames generated from one's real name in the SSO API.

      Yes exactly. It's possible there's an error somewhere in our code as well, just thought I'd flag this so we make sure to look at it :)

        I couldn't reproduce — I added an e2e test that SSO-upserts a new user with full name: Fr Ç é ù ï â 'S "D and another that upserts a user with that same name as username, and in both cases Ty then generates the username Fr_C_e_u_i_a_S_D (without 39)

          Hm yea the apostrophe may have been escaped elsewhere..

    2. Progress
      with handling this problem
