    Are group and user IDs restricted to lower case, digit, "_" and "-" characters?


      Upgrading from CQ5.3 to CQ5.5 and it appears when creating groups and users, there is a new restriction on the IDs.  The creation dialog restricts these textfields to the type, "authorizableId", which only allows lower case letters, digits, underscore, "_", and dash, "-", characters.


      What are the ramifications of just moving our current user and group IDs, which have upper case letters along with space, equal, "=", and comma, ",", characters?


      If I have to make my IDs comply with the new restrictions, does anyone have any strategies for dealing with this issue?
