Welcome screen shows user DN of ldap user next to "sign out" link | AEM 6.2


In AEM6.2, when LDAP users log in and go to /welcome.html, the Classic UI Welcome screen shows their full LDAP DN next to the "sign-out" link on the upper right of the screen.


This is an issue with Classic UI in AEM6.2.

org.apache.jackrabbit.api.security.user.UserManager userManager = resourceResolver.adaptTo(org.apache.jackrabbit.api.security.user.UserManager.class);
org.apache.jackrabbit.api.security.user.Authorizable authorizable = userManager.getAuthorizable(auth.getPrincipal());
if (authorizable.hasProperty("profile/familyName")) {
name = authorizable.getProperty("profile/familyName")[0].getString(); 
if (authorizable.hasProperty("profile/givenName")) {
name = authorizable.getProperty("profile/givenName")[0].getString() + ((name.length() > 0)?" " + name:"");


String name = auth == null ? null : auth.getPrincipal().getName();
if (name == null) {
// workaround if user manager service is not ready yet.
name = session.getUserID();
