Changing all usernames in ALM?
Question ID: 108784

We would like to change the user login name in ALM for all users (about 1000 users). currently our format is lastname_firstname and we want to change it to the network id used within our LDAP configuration. We have not found any option to do that.
Our request is :

1) All user names should be changed in SiteAdmin
2) Same change should happen for Project users for all projects
3) It would be great if it can also be changed for all entities fields(defects detected by, assignee etc. ) which are of type UserList. (But this change isn’t necessary).

Is this even possible and if so is there an easy tool to accomplish this?

Hi HomerJ,
I encountered this question before and submitted it through the developers to see how this could be easily done and if a tool existed. The response that I received is that the this is not easily accomplished and that it would require special assistance from the developers to make such changes occur. They need to address the different tables housing the username and that each situation and installation may vary slightly and thus such a change should only be attempted with their special group assistance and they recommend that if you are to want to perform such an endeavor contact their support to get connected with the correct group to assist with this and it would be a contracted endeavor outside of the normal realm of support as it involved direct and specialized assistance from their engineers.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but this was their stance on the subject.
