For developers and site builders
- Views: The real name and the CCID have been exposed to Views: if you need to include it in a view you can add it as a field, a filter or a contextual filter.
- Token: By enabling this module, the tokens will change: [user:name] will return the CERN Real name, while [user:name-raw] will return account name (NICE login name). You will also be able to access the CERN CCID for the user accounts.
