LDAP Group import fails if email address is null for a user

We are trying to import users based on specific groups.

Our Import Search Filter is set properly -

The issue one facing is for one user the email address is not set. So the import is failing.

Question :
Ideally it should skip that user and import the other users but the whole process fails.

Answer :
Here is a response to that question.  It is not a bug.  In order for a user to be authenticated in the
Liferay Portal, five pieces of user data are needed.  Without these, user authentication will fail.

They are:

1.  Screen name
2.  First name
3.  Last name
4.  Email
5.  Password

Resolution :
 So in this case, you need to set:

     users.email.address.required=true to "false."

If require, please take reference from portal.properties in Liferay Source or leave a comment here.

You are just done, Try & Enjoy the function.............:))
