Community Nickname has to be unique across all users? or it has to be unique within a org? As far as I know, username has to be unique across all Salesforce users in the world. Any thoughts?

Yes your salesforce username has to be globally unique. I would think the Community Nickname is only unique across your org.

Within the org. That's what you're authenticating into.

  • Please correct me if I am wrong. Nickname has to be unique within the org but username has to be unique across all the orgs world-wide. Am I right? – doga Oct 25 '12 at 4:37
