Relax requiredness for attributes in oxtrust's user form? #949

SCIM spec treats the following attributes as not required: displayName, name.givenName, and name.familyName.

Formerly in our server implementation we had those as required (<= 3.1.2). For 3.1.3 they were changed to optional to adhere more closely to standard. Citing nynymike:

I think WE SHOULD UPDATE our code to not require the attributes. oxTrust can generate GUIDs for any missing fields.

There was a related ticket some time ago as well.

This adjustment would affect first name, last name, and displayname fields of our oxTrust user form. @yurem can you assign this issue if there are no objections about this change?.

@jgomer2001 do you mean first name, last name and displayname is not mandatory?

I thought it over and concluded we'd better not change anything. For instance, our UI form has email and password required, while in SCIM you can create passwordless users or not providing emails at all. And it doesn't make sense to relax those two attributes in oxtrust!
