Create user via Classlist, username issue

We'd like to use Email as the login. However, the system doesn't allow it via the course when creating a user in Classlist. Where might I be able to fix that? We're able to use email if we create accounts via course merchant or if an admin creates them.




  • Hi @Scott.B.223 ,

    Thank you for reaching Brightspace Community!

    Its is expected that you can create a user with Username using "@" from the Users tool but unfortunately you will not be able to create and enrol a user from Classlist tool with username including "@" and it is not recommended to include "@ "in a username from the Classlist Tool due to its impact on other tools.

    Thanks, but then why is it allowed at the admin level? If it really caused issues with other tools, wouldn't "@" not be allowed for Usernames there either?


  • Hi Scott,

    Thank you for the update , to add on it; it is not allowed per user Role permission even admins will not be able to create user name from the Classlist tool with"@" but would be able from the Users tool. Unfortunately it is currently known not to be consistent between the tools.

    I would recommend raising a PIE item requesting for enabling the emails when creating users from the Classlist tool.
