External User with any case(lowercase/uppercase/mixed) userid should be allowed to login B2Bi dashboard and SFG when Authentication host is LDAP

We are facing one issue while authenticating sterling b2bi user using LDAP as authentication host.
some of the user id in LDAP is maintained in upper case, while some are in lower case.

user will always login to dashboard using lower case.

As some of the users are maintained in upper case, when these uppercase user logins the b2bi dashboard they cannot able to login and fails as invalid user.

So we want this feature that any case user (lowercase/uppercase/mixed) should be allowed to login where authentication host is LDAP.

    Some switch or option to force/convert all logins to use either all upper-case or all lower-case depending on LDAP and/or downstream system requirements might be useful as well.
