Reproducing the Issue

  1.  In SF, a user upload multiple files which have the same name XXX, for example in a People profile portlet of SuccessFactors.
  2.  After those files being transferred to a 3rd party application, customer find that for a same user, file names will become XXX(1),XXX (2), XXX(3).etc.


Per confirmed with engineering team, file name convention for the same user is expected behavior.
The same user is not allowed to have duplicate file names for third-party integration, regardless the folders.


The workaround is to avoid upload file with duplicate name for same user, or modify file name in 3rd party application after files being transferred.
