I am currently facing a problem. We created a new user in Crowd with a spelling error in the full name. The user worked successful in Confluence and would like his full name to be corrected.
However, in Confluence I cannot change the full name - maybe this is because the users are configured in Crowd.
So I changed the full name in Crowd, but I do NOT see the changed name in Confluence.
Some more information about external user management in Confluence 3.0.2 can be found here :
Thanks for the link to the documentation. However, I am not able to find the information how to update the Full Name in Confluence if user administration is done by Crowd.
User was created with a typo in the Full Name, after correction in Crowd the Full Name in Confluence is not updated and I am not able to update the Full Name within Confluence.
Thanks for the quick response. Neither the user himself nor the administrator is able to edit the full name.
SORRY - but I haven't found that user was defined in two different Crowd directories and only one of the two entries was changed.
BIG EXCUSE to waste for wasting your time.
So, I have learnt first to clarify if my admin colleagues are telling me the complete truth ;-)
You need to resync your user directory in Confluence to see the changes you made in Crowd.
You can do this manualy or wait untill it happens automatically.

Thanks Peter. My fault, I forgot to mention that we are still using Confluence 3.0.2 (yes, we are going to upgrade this year, but still running this old version).
Any hint about running this sync, because I ahven't found the 'User Directories' screen?
