Hi All,
I need to login by authenticate as emailAddress or screenName simultaneously. How to achieve this?
Right now Liferay is supporting either one not both options simultaneously.

Hi Sakir,
Only on UI you need to show both option or you want to cater some other functionality based on authentication mechanism.

Hi kamal,

In UI both 2 options(Email and screenName) will be available . User can either choose one of options and can login with authentication.

I hope by default liferay not having this feature. Following thread giving solution.

Hi Sakir,
we have done with slightly different way since we are having two fields on UI then on client side we can easily set authType and get in java.

Thanks
