Q: I am integrating AuthRocket and noticed that usernames are saved lowercased. Is this by design?
A: It is by design. Usernames are always lowercased and must be unique. This is, in part, because we use them as a unique key—you can actually substitute a username for the user’s ID for many of the user-related API calls.
To store a non-unique or case-sensitive username, use either the
first_name field or a custom field.
Another option is using the email address as the username. Then you can look up users directly by email/username without any kind of conversion step.
