I am needing to set up two distinct users (one for each of two LDAP log ins) and I need for them both to use the same admin email address. However, Craft 2 will not let me do this. Is there a way to do this for this type of special admin/ldap user?

Not natively because Craft places a unique index on the email column of the craft_users table in the database.

Without knowing the specifics of what you're trying to achieve, I'd probably write a custom plugin that listened to user registration events in Craft and saved the necessary LDAP information in its own database tables that had foreign keys back to the native craft_users table.

  • Even with the custom plugin, would I need 2 different email addresses?
