Is there a character limit when creating a new CORE User ID?

The CORE User ID maximum length is 16 characters, and they all must be lowercase. For requirements when completing a UDOC you will want to review the CORE Access Policy.

If the CORE User ID will exceed the 16 character limit, you will want to truncate the User ID.

Example:  
  • Johnny Messersmithington (exceeds 16 character limit, so truncate) = j.messersmithing
