    Hi,

     

    I believe we cannot update User Name on GUI.

    On the other hand, it seems REST API can do that.

     

    There is a user whose name is t.yamada.

     

    Used following REST API to get User ID.

    GET:    http://<NAC>:<Port>/datamanagement/ra/administration/v5/users

     

    Found id = 3 in the response.

    {
    "username": "t.yamada",
    "role": {
    "type": "user",
    "applicationCreator": true,
    "artifactsManager": false
    },
    "password": "***",
    "email": "taro.yamada@caj.local",
    "firstName": "Taro",
    "lastName": "Yamada",
    "isLocalUser": true,
    "id": "3"
    }

     

    Used following REST API with User ID to update user name.

    PUT:    http://<NAC>:<Port>/datamanagement/ra/administration/v5/users/<User ID>

     

    Copied whole info of target user from response and Changed username in Request Body,  

    Note: I needed to set correct password as well.

     

    Refresh ROC, and then User Name was changed.

     

    I verified these steps on RA 6.6. If you use earlier version, the REST API may not be available. Because this feature was introduced on RA 6.6.

    New Features and Enhancements - CA Release Automation - 6.6 - CA Technologies Documentation 

     

    And, I don't know any impact to change user name at this stage. So, if you can accept to recreate your users, I recommend to recreate users on GUI.

     

    Thanks

    Hi AKANKSHA,

     

    As you opened the question on Release Automation Community, I thought your question is related to RA...

    If you have any general questions regarding this community site, "Customer Care" is helpful for you.

    Customer Care 

     

    Do you mean that "username" is following?

    Click my avatar and "Edit Profile". 

     

    If so, please try to do following steps.

    1. Access https://support.ca.com
    2. Sign in. (If already sign-in, I recommend to sign-out and sign-in again.)
    3. Select "MY ACCOUNT" > "PROFILE".
    4. Select "Basic Access" and Click "Edit" button.
    5. You can change username.

     

    I hope my answer helps you.

     

    Thanks

    Yas
