Admin Panel - edit external user names and email addresses

We can't edit external user names once they've been created. If you find the user and click edit, you have no access to change their name or email address. In the case where the email address is correct, but the user name needs to be changed (a misspelling for instance), you would think you could simply delete the user and re-add them - but no. It remembers that email address and automatically fills in the user's name (misspelling and all).

I think it's reasonable to expect you may need to edit a person's name or email address - especially if you haven't even actually invited them yet.

    Hi Tammy - your comment makes perfect sense to me, and as the Product Manager for Security & Governance for at least a few more weeks I am happy to discuss this with my successor and the architects and engineers and see what we can do about it.

  • I would add that it would be useful for repository administrators to adjust any username, internal or external.

  • The request was added to the Security & Governance teams backlog as an enhancement request. There are a few requests for different behaviors where it comes to editing user names so the Product Manager will look to see what fits together well and then prioritize.

  • This functionality is highly desirable. I can only imagine the mess of "phantom users" in my repositories that need to be cleaned up.

    I share Paul Hoffbrand's opinion above that this should apply to all users types -- internal and external.
