When users import people using the Members
widget in Communities, user names in an email address cannot contain special characters. For example, user_name
in this email address cannot contain any special characters: firstname.lastname@example.org
When the name of a group that is used in a community is renamed in LDAP, the old group name still appears on the Members
page of the community. The new group name does not appear in the community, until a member of that group logs in and accesses Communities.
When you delete a group from the LDAP Directory, and that group has been used by communities for membership, the deleted group still appears in the Members
page of the community with member access. The group members no longer have member access to the community due to the group deletion, and the deleted group cannot be added to other communities.
