As admin: can't change usernames

(Codecademy ) #1

I can’t change usernames as an admin. It’s frustrating because there are inappropriate usernames I need to update.

See below I am trying to save it as “sax”

What is the min username length you have set in the Admin > Settings area?

(Codecademy ) #3

Min is 3, max is 20.

Are you running latest Discourse over there ?

Renaming is working fine here so it could be an issue with an earlier release.

No we are: 1.5.0.beta6

That may be why? We try to stay on top of updates and I suppose I will prioritoize this one right away.

Possibly, it is either that or an incompatible plugin.

Are you using SSO? If so, you can’t change usernames via discourse admin.

(Codecademy ) #10

Yes we do have SSO, funny thing is - there is no user under that user name on our site…

(Codecademy ) #11

I updated and still no dice.

See our below plugins:

Do you have the sso overrides username setting set?
