Summary0006213: The realname is not in message tags when receiving a privmsg
DescriptionEverything is mentioned in the subject. There is all the data but only the realname is missing.
The realname is very useful to retrieve the age and gender of the person sending a message to the bot in a very direct way, without going through any other raw/async/await and all that.

Is this an oversight?
TagsNo tags attached.

The realname is available under user.username, see under "client.user object".

But you talk about privmsg. There is no logging of messages in unrealircd, so you must mean something else, and possibly not json logging at all? :)

ah yes indeed there is no "log json" for the privmsg, I always confuse with the "raw view" of the irc-framework

   type: 'privmsg',
   from_server: false,
   nickname: 'testor',
   ident: 'o-dcs-fr832b21b-4',
   hostname: 'B46E5A17:3E0C15BB:D48EA5D0:IP',
   target: 'Sysop',
   group: undefined,
   message: '...',
   tags: {
     '': 'FR',
     '': 'o-dcs-fr832b21b-4@...',
     '': 'o-dcs-fr832b21b-4@.....',
     msgid: '4M68baRh7a76xpQo62szf8',
     time: '2022-09-19T23:53:43.390Z'
   time: 1663631623390,
   account: undefined,
   batch: undefined,
   reply: [Function (anonymous)]

It's just a shame that there isn't a ready-made variable for the realname, each time I have to go through another raw with asynchronous/await

tags: {
'': 'FR',
'realname': '18/F/75',

Technically there is no way to put a realname variable in "tags"?

Right, I think you mean message tags. I don't think that is useful to the general UnrealIRCd community. I mean, in normal circumstances, it is rather a waste of unnecessary data.

It can be done in a 3rd party module. It would be relatively easy to make a message tag that is automatically added that includes the realname.
You could copy src/modules/account-tag.c for inspiration, then replace the IsLoggedin() check with an IsUser(), replace the safe_strdup(m->value, client->user->account); with safe_strdup(m->value, client->info);
And mass replace all the "account" words to "realname" (and "ACCOUNT" to "REALNAME").
