Title to System Name vs. Display to System Name

I'm wondering if I am observing regular behavior in the difference between these 2 plugins.

We would ideally like to use the Display to System Name Plugin to auto name our assets as we us it as a more concise form of the title and it better suits file names. My only problem is that the Display to System Name Plugin does not seem force the system name to all lower case like the Title to System Name Plugin does.

Am I missing something? Is there another trick I can use to force the system name to lower case without having to require users to manually input a system name?

Thanks.

    Hi,

    The only way to do this is to create your own asset factory plugin to transform the name into all lowercase letters.

    Is this behavior by design or is it an oversight in the plugin development? It certainly creates inconsistencies between the behaviors of the plugins and makes a best practice of using all lower case urls more difficult.

    This was most likely an oversight during the plug-in development process. I've added an item to our issue tracker to look into this for a future release. Apologies for the inconvenience!
