SAML RealName Alias

Path Finder

I have my Search Head Cluster authentication working with SAML intergration with our IdP. But currently our IdP sends our first, last names in two different Attributes, shown below...

        <saml:Attribute Name="FirstName"
                        NameFormat="urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:attrname-format:basic"
                        >
            <saml:AttributeValue xmlns:q5="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"
                                 p7:type="q5:string"
                                 xmlns:p7="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
                                 >FIRSTNAME</saml:AttributeValue>
        </saml:Attribute>
        <saml:Attribute Name="LastName"
                        NameFormat="urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:attrname-format:basic"
                        >
            <saml:AttributeValue xmlns:q6="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"
                                 p7:type="q6:string"
                                 xmlns:p7="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
                                 >LASTNAME</saml:AttributeValue>
        </saml:Attribute>

Is there a way in the SAML Configuration for RealName Alias to concatenate these two attribute/values?

Path Finder

I tried "LastName, FirstName" in the RealName Alias of the SAML configuration but that did not work. it didn't throw an error, just came up with a blank full name field in the user's profile.

Did you ever get this solved? I have the same issue.
