Rename specific account in LDAP, Wikitech and Gerrit
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Hi! My global username has recently changed from "Luis Felipe Schenone" to "Felipe Schenone". I'd like to request the same rename at LDAP, WikiTech and Gerrit.

Also, my username at Gerrit is currently lfs, I would really appreciate it if it could be changed to Sophivorus, and my username here at Phabricator is lfschenone, I'd appreciate if it could also be changed to Sophivorus.

Sophivorus updated the task description. (Show Details)

I've done the rename of "Luis Felipe Schenone" to "Felipe Schenone" per the request. Sorry it took so long, I got caught up doing other things.

Regarding lfs -> lfschenone, I'm not entirely sure if we can since that's your shell name in Labs as well (cf: T73083). I'd rather someone else from labs weigh in on if that's ok.

Thanks a lot demon! About lfs to lfschenone, do you mean we should wait for someone from labs to comment? Maybe when the task you linked is closed, it will be easier to handle my case. Cheers!

Moreso that it's basically the same request as T73083 and I'd like someone like @chasemp or @Andrew to let me know if it's ok to change a user's UID in ldap. It *can* be done from my end, I'm just unsure if it should.

I modified my rename request. The requested username change would now be:

  • At Gerrit, from lfs to Sophivorus
  • At Phabricator, from lfschenone to Sophivorus

Thanks!

This is done. As outlined above, we do not update shell/uids for users, so that will remain lfs. Otherwise, you're good to go.

Thanks!
So @chasemp or @Andrew told you it's not ok to change a user's UID in LDAP?
