Any restrictions on account name formatting for firebox-db authentication

I've tried searching the documentation and via Google more generally and I can't seem to find an answer to this.

Are there any restrictions on user account name formatting (min length, no spaces, no symbols, etc.)?

If anyone can point me to where this is discussed in the documentation, that would be an acceptable response, too.

Thanks in advance.

    Hi @jskang

    Valid Characters can be alphanumeric (letters and numbers) or - (dash,) space, _ (underscore,) + (plus,) . (period,) and * (asterisk.)

    Minimum length is 1 character, maximum is 58. I would suggest shorter user names as they'll be easier for the users to remember/type.

    If you attempt to save a user name with an invalid character you'll get a popup/error with the above information.
