Bug fixes

IDMTA-731
ProblemWhen entering the Mendix username and API key on the My Account page sometimes the username was not saved correctly, due to Chromium browsers autofilling the field. This resulted in the MTA user not being able to download any Mendix models but also not being alerted about the fact that the username was not saved.
SolutionAlert the user when the username is not correctly filled in upon entering Mendix username and API key.
Release actionsSome MTA nodes currently have Mendix users where the username is unknown. A migration script will be executed on these MTA nodes where the username will be set to "user unknown". Please check the My Account page when not being able to download any Mendix models in MTA.
