Login to web GUI: selection of realm based on user name suffix

Nov 7, 2023
I have users in multiple realms that would like to log in using their password managers.

Currently it seems as if users must manually select their realm from the drop down menu "Realm:" in order to successfully log in. Simply suffixing the realm name to the user name (notation "user_1@realm_a", as used in the web GUI) does not seem to work. This poses a problem when attempting to log in with password managers, as the selection of the drop down menu "Realm:" does not seem to allow auto filling values (I tried supplying the realm description, as visible in the drop down menu itself, without success).

A simple solution might be to allow suffixing the realm name in the user name filed (i.e. "user_1@realm_a" or "user_2@realm_b") of the login form.

Any other solutions that I might have missed/overlooked?

Thank you!
