Rename user account

Hi,

 

Please let me know if there is a way within ALM of renaming a user account or if there is a plug in tool to help do the job.

I have a user that has a last name change and I'm hoping to make this update. One thing i wonder is, what will happen to history of defects assigned to this user after the name change.

 

Thanks for your help.

Re: Rename user account

Hi Wade

 

No, there is no Rename User Tool, that requieres to create a tool using OTA to do this.

If a tool exists, when you rename the user, the entities assigned to the old user should be assigned to the new username, this is the complexity of creating a tool like this.

 

Regards,

Alvaro.
