> The username generated for anonymous users of shared connections by the JDBC auth is
a bit ugly, being a UUID:
> !ugly-anonymous-username.png!
> This definitely works, but bothers me for a few reasons:
> # It's uncomfortable to look at.
> # It has no semantic usefulness - there's no way its presence in the logs will help trace
issues to a particular user, as the username is randomly generated.
> # The user is *anonymous*. They shouldn't have a name.
> In my opinion, we should consider adopting a standardized username for anonymous users
(empty string perhaps?) which can then be rendered by the interface appropriately.
