When I deposit on behalf of another user, the other user's first and last name is given in the Description of Work form, but my ORCID number and my middle initials are also given in that user's name. Those fields are blank in the other user's My Profile.


The middle name should also be mapped into the Rights holder element, when the depositor has specified 'author' as Rightsholder.

See Comment #4: when I deposit on behalf of someone who does not have a middle name or an ORCID, my own middle name and ORCID are added to that other person's record.

I deposit on behalf of Stephanie Bartz. She does not have a middle name or ORCID in her My Profile. That middle name and ORCID that you see (link below) belong to Rhonda MyMiddleName Marker.

I deposited on behalf of Stephanie Bartz. The form did not have a middle name or ORCID although I have them in My Profile. I verified that this information is not written to WMS (TEXT view does not show ORCID or middle name).
