Problems to expect when using unsupported special characters

we are planning a a migration from Authentication Manager 6.1 to version 8.x.

The release notes of version 8 state that there are several special characters that are no longer supported. I did run the migration assessment tool and there are several user accounts that do use these characters. As the accounts are managed in LDAP and the information is used by other systems as well we can not remove or replace these characters.


What problems are expected when keeping the special characters in the user information? I did several tests with Internal Database users containing special characters and everything seemed to be working fine.


If that changes anything - the special characters are never in the user id.


Thanks in advance.
