There is a typical use case where you have the same password for different sites, but the username for the login is not the same one. The reason for that is because the authentication service for different sites is an integration with a idP (for example something like an LDAP) and it uses in one site the email of the user and in the other the username. For example, imagine the user James Smith with an user id jsmith and an email [email protected], and the password in LDAP is 123
then there are 2 websites:
- https://website1.com which needs as authentication the userid and password (jsmith / 123)
- https://website2.com which needs as authentication the user email and password ([email protected] / 123).
It would be great to have a way to say in some way the username for each of the URLs we add for the autofill, or a way to link to reuse the password for another entry. I know it is not a good practise to reuse password for different domains, but it is not really that it is a different domain, it is just that it is relaying in an identity provider which uses the email of just the user id.
