When administrator have enabled registration by e-mail on website, then Username field is no longer required.

This sounds good, but since we have username length validation always enabled, then I still get "Field value length is out of range, possible value length from 3 to 255" error for Username field.


Not sure if it's a problem made by user or by In-Portal. Since when enabling by e-mail registration administrator also sees that 3-255 username limit setting on the same page and ca change it to 0-255 and everything will be ok.

Is it needed to allow an username of less than 3 chars?

Nope, but when you are not required to enter username (on a registration form) at all and you're asked for it to be at least 3 symbols long sounds strange.

Sounds like a BUG to me since if field is NOT required anymore (not used) why would we check the length in it?

Am I missing something?

In-Portal has a set of validation rules you can apply on a field and they are listed here: http://guide.in-portal.org/eng/index.php/K4:Defining_Database%2C_Virtual_and_Calculated_Fields#Validation_Options 

Each of the rules works on it's own. However some rules do sort of required checks on field value, e.g. min_len, min_val.

Usually it's up to a developer not to set conflicting validation rules, like 'required' => 0, 'min_len' => 3, in this case. But in this case these validation rules are set internally based on user configuration section.
And yes, it seems that we shouldn't set username length validation if it's not required.
