User registration - Mail not valid

0 votes
Hi! A user reported me an issue while registering to my application, and I've discovered that his mail throws exception as not valid because it has only 2 digits before the @.

Is this working as intended? I know it's a pretty rare case, but he can't be forced to change his facebook mail for it.

We have followed the general Regex to check the email pattern. We believe it will work for the case which you have shared. Can you please share the Platform & SDK version in which you are working on, so that we can check & provide better support to you. image

I'm using it in customcode, with the app42 java SDK 2.4.1
I've got the "Email is not valid" error also if I try to create the user from the apphq console!

Here the example:
Looks like a valid use case. We will give you a workaround to do that in next 24 hours.
thanks a lot!
Please  download the java source file from below link.
Deploy this file along with your jar file and call registerUser instead of createUser as shown below.

App42UserService create = new App42UserService("API_KEY","SECRET_KEY");
String user = create.registerUser("UserName", "Password", "EmailId");

Let us know if it helps.
