Import url is blocked: Username needs to start with an alphanumeric character - Azure web app
Using the auto-generated deployment credentials from an Azure Web App, we are unable to import the git repo into gitlab because auto-generated credentials always start with a '$' in the username, i.e. $someappname
This creates the error:
Import url is blocked: Username needs to start with an alphanumeric character
Steps to reproduce
In Gitlab, New project -> Import project -> git Repo by URL, try using a username that starts with '$'
What is the current bug behavior?
We are blocked from importing.
What is the expected correct behavior?
The import would function normally.
