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.
