Could you answer a few questions so I have a better idea of what you're experiencing? 

  1. What version of JIRA are you running?
  2. What kind of directory does this user reside in? (Internal, LDAP, Crowd, etc.)
  3. Can you currently disable or rename the account?


My JIRA version is 5.2.9; The user of jira reside in Crowd; The accounts can't be disabled and renamed; Thanks Terry
