Duplicated usernames can be created in sandbox environments
Last updated 2020-09-14 ·Reference W-8014705 ·Reported By 1 users
Duplicate usernames can be created when obfuscated usernames are enabled in sandboxes. This may be detected by experiencing the error “username as duplicate” when attempting to modify a user.
According to Salesforce policy, it is required that all usernames must be unique across all Salesforce organizations.
1. Create a user in any sandbox with Obfuscated usernames enabled.
2. Attempt to create a user with exactly the same username in a different sandbox, on a different sandbox instance.
3. This will succeed, where it is expected to fail due to the presence of a duplicated username.
None. However, if the impact of this issue is discovered, one of the duplicated usernames will need to be renamed.
