2837099 - Searching by middle name in recommendation feature for the LMS


When a user searching to recommend to another users, they are able to search by first, lastname, first last , and first middle last name. However , there is not an ability to search the recommendation area by just middle name, is this a feautre that needs to have a setting turned on?


SAP Learning Management System

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log into LMS as a user
  2. search catalog for a item
  3. Select more
  4. select recommend
  5. Search for user by middle name, nothing comes up. 


reccomendation feature was not designed to search by middle name as a unique identifier and is not supported to do so, there are no setting to add this functionaility to the feature.


Working by design.
