Invalid Name for _user in Sync Gateway


#1

Hello,

Simple question, i am trying to create a user on sync gateway with an accented charter in the name :smile:

“MisterAccentĂ©d”

I receive HTTP: #3684: --> 400 Invalid name

Does Sync Gateway support all utf-8 encoded characters for username ?

Thanks

No, it looks like user names are restricted the same way channel names are — only characters matching the regexp [-+.@\w].

Thank you for the confirmation
