When I try to use createEmptyUser(xwikiname, userRights, context) from an XWiki object (context.getWiki()) if I manually add "XWiki." in the "xwikiname" it creates an "XWiki.mynewuser", but on the Admin Users page it doesn't looks like a normal user, it lacks many of the the user properties and doesn't have the XWiki.XWikiUserSheet in it's content, also when I try to get it's XWikiDocument it appears as XWiki.XWiki.mynewuser.

I'm working with XWiki version 2.4 (xwiki-core-2.4.jar

Currently, I'm checking how XWikiSunSSOAuthenticator does it, checking what I do wrong.

Thank you,
Marco A. Gonzalez

If not, any suggestions of what I do wrong?

Are you sure wikiname (not a very good variable name ;) ) includes the 
"XWiki." prefix?

References are resolved relative to the current context:

Foo          -> currentWiki:currentSpace.Foo
Bar.Foo      -> currentWiki:Bar.Foo
wiki:Bar.Foo -> wiki:Bar.Foo

Hope this helps,
