Change or delete attribute from schema


Verison: ID Gov 3.0.x

I created a string extended attribute for users but I need to change this attribute to bolean type. So I think that I have two options: delete the attribute and create again or edit and change the attribute type but I have an issue.

Is importante to mention that this atribute was collected and published by Identity source, but after the frst collection I deleted the value of attribute from identity source definition and then I collected and published idenitties again and now identities don't have the attribute (check in user catalog).

Result of two option

1) Delete option: delete button is disabled (message: this system attribute cannot be deleted) in the menu Data administration > User.

2) Edit option: I can't change the type (string to bolean) in the menu Data administration > User > edit attribute.

I need to use the same name of extended attribute so that is the reason to not use another attribute.

Any idea?

Thanks and regards
