currently in getAuthInfo() we assume that a verified email can have the Name splitted into 2 with the last space being the divider

    } else if verified, _ := claims[ctrl.EmailVerifiedClaim].(bool); verified || ctrl.EmailVerifiedClaim == "" {
        // Fall back to this info if the People API call
        // (below) doesn't return a primary && verified email.
        name, _ := claims["name"].(string)
        if names := strings.Fields(strings.TrimSpace(name)); len(names) > 1 {
            ret.FirstName = strings.Join(names[0:len(names)-1], " ")
            ret.LastName = names[len(names)-1]
        } else if len(names) > 0 {
            ret.FirstName = names[0]
        ret.Email, _ = claims[ctrl.EmailClaim].(string)

I think this logic is wrong, or at least there is a lot of double surnames https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_naming_customs

but then on line 220:

    // The given/family names returned by the People API and
    // flagged as "primary" (if any) take precedence over the
    // split-by-whitespace result from above.
    for _, name := range person.Names {
        if name.Metadata != nil && name.Metadata.Primary {
            ret.FirstName = name.GivenName
            ret.LastName = name.FamilyName

if given name and family name are part of the claims, they are priotized.

5c8a7da1f403b44adfdd1f132988bdffc21d9228 17748-extra-claims,

reveals a decision to be made... if PeopleAPI is present, but we have claims that have given_name and first_name .... how should we proceed?

Tom, maybe this is not part of the scope. but probably we should make a decision

A name received from the People API (which looks like it already preserves given/family names correctly) should continue to take precedence over the OIDC provider response.

#11 Updated by Tom Clegg 4 months ago

The "fall back to this info if..." comment seems to be in the wrong place now -- it applies to the whole "if verified" block, but its placement suggests that it only applies to the "if no family_name" block.

The given/family name logic seems a bit complicated -- if we get given_name but no family_name, then we set FirstName to given_name but then change it to the split-by-space version. Taking advantage of the fact that "foo, _ := val.(string)" sets foo to "" if val is not a string, and we handle "" the same way as missing/non-string anyway, would this make it more obvious?

givenName, _ := claims["given_name"].(string)
familyName, _ := claims["family_name"].(string)
if givenName != "" && familyName != "" {
        ret.FirstName = givenName
        ret.LastName = familyName
} else {
        name, _ := claims["name"].(string)
        // ...

Perhaps renaming the existing TestGoogleLogin_OIDCRealName (to ...OIDCNameWithoutGivenAndFamilyNames?) would make it more obvious how it differs from TestGoogleLogin_OIDCClamisWithGivenNames (which should be Claims, not Clamis).

In the interest of reducing redundant tests: It looks like if we change Given/Family names to {"Fake", "User Name"} in SetUpTest, and update TestGoogleLogin_Success accordingly, then we wouldn't even need a separate TestGoogleLogin_OIDCClamisWithGivenNames test to check the normal case, and the old/renamed OIDCNameWithoutGivenAndFamilyNames test would check the case where we fall back to splitting on whitespace.

#17 Updated by Lucas Di Pentima 3 months ago

Just one comment:

  • I think the test TestGoogleLogin_OIDCClaimsWithGivenNames is already included in TestGoogleLogin_Success, so it could be removed, right?

Other than that, it LGTM.
