How can i rename or change the display name for a google user?

I have a misspelled user name in my Jira users list

The misspell came originally from the google apps user - there i was able to fix it

but this fix did not propagate to jira, and i found no way to fix it manually in jira

how to do it?

apparently the google integration did the refresh - it just took it a lot longer then anticipated

Hi Lee, just FYI Google Apps updates every hour by default. You can either change this or manually update your list of users by going into the administration. Refer to for further information.
