FAQ: Does ArcSDE support special characters in usernames?

Question

Does ArcSDE support special characters in usernames?

Answer

No. While connections may be possible with a quoted user, Esri does not support special characters such as quotes in user names. The purpose of using quoted users is to preserve case and any special characters within Oracle. ArcSDE does not fully qualify usernames using quotation marks, and as a result the system may fail if any users designated in this way own or edit data and use logfiles.
