Rename @thiemowmde's account in LDAP, Wikitech, and Gerrit
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

My legal name changed from "Thiemo Mättig" to "Thiemo Kreuz". I'd love to have my accounts in LDAP, Wikitech, and Gerrit changed accordingly:

  • Phabricator: My username always was @thiemowmde, and I can edit the display name. So nothing to do here.
  • Gerrit: My account ID is 1453. I already registered my new email address thiemo.kreuz@wikimedia.de. But I still need to log in as "Thiemo Mättig (WMDE)", and this is also how my name shows up everywhere. This should be changed to "Thiemo Kreuz (WMDE)".
  • My account and user page at https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Thiemo_Mättig_(WMDE) needs to move.

Part of the process is described at https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Renaming_users. Please also refer to T85913: Rename specific account in LDAP, Wikitech, Gerrit and Phabricator where the same request for an other account was extensively discussed.

Gerrit change done and wikitech page renamed. Closing this, feel free to reopen if something is wrong.

I had to delete and recreate the link from my Phabricator account to LDAP, but now everything looks fine. Thanks a lot!

Unfortunately, one issue remains: https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Thiemo_Mättig_(WMDE) was accidentally renamed to "Thiemo Kreuz", but should have been renamed to "Thiemo Kreuz (WMDE)". Weirdly enough, I can log in as "Thiemo Kreuz (WMDE)". I think this is because of LDAP. But all my contributions and just everything on-wiki is assigned to the local wiki account "Thiemo Kreuz", which I don't own.

Ah indeed. Sorry about that. However, I guess we should delete the new user create when you logged in because I can no longer rename Thiemo Kreuz to `Thiemo Kreuz (WMDE) getting "The user "Thiemo Kreuz (WMDE)" already exists." Is that OK with you ?
