Username Fixup

Username Fixup allows you to make modifications to the Results Authorization username provided, such as adding or removing a domain. This allows multiple back-ends with slightly different authentication schemes to be searched simultaneously in a Meta Search.

For example, suppose you have a wiki and a file server. They use the same authentication back-ends, but the wiki takes the format username and the file server takes the format DOMAIN\username. If you create a profile for each of them and set the Username Fixup Replace value for the file server to DOMAIN\\\1, then you can meta-search both with username and each will get the format it needs.
