Is there a way to remove author from list or at least change its email?

Hi

I have an author that have been created by accident and contains wrong information. Some builds has been made using this author, but were, since then, removed.

Is there a way to remove author from list or at least change its email?

You can try removing/modifying the entry from DB table AUTHORS. If your DB supports foreign key constraints (which is not the case for MySQL using MyISAM storage) you can try deleting entry from DB:

DELETE FROM author WHERE author_name = '<author-name>';

If operation will fail due to foreign key constraints it means it is still used by Bamboo and you can only modify it

UPDATE author SET author_email = '<new-author-email>' WHERE author_name = '<author-name>';

warning Please do a full backup of your DB before manually editing its contents

This is Bamboo on demand. I don't have access to underlying database. Can it be done by some kind of customer support request?

I'm not sure how requests like this are resolved but creating a support ticket costs you nothing :)
