I've been trying to change the Header Portlet in the IDM 3.6.1 User App
so that it displays the preferredName attribute instead of the Given
Name in the welcome message. I've added preferredName to the User
entity in the DAL, and I've set the Welcome Message in the preferences
on the Header portlet to: Welcome $[[preferredName]]

However, when a user logs in they see 'Welcome $[[preferredName]]'
instead of 'Welcome Fred'. This does not seem to be due to a problem
with the DAL because I can add preferredName to the Detail portlet and
it displays correctly. I've even found that attributes like Title don't
work, even though they're in the DAL by default. The only ones I can
get working are FirstName and LastName. Any ideas?
