I have to bulk edit issues by changing the reporter and assignee(User A) in a project to a User B, and then delete the initial reporter and assignee(User A), what would happen to the comments which were posted by the user A?
Is it possible to modify the name of the person who has commented else how would they appear for closed tickets?
If the user is deleted you'll get an sql error when displaying the history information as the database just keeps the primary key of the user, not the actual user name. Deleting users breaks that pointer. Users shouldn't be deleted, just removed from all groups and roles used by projects. I setup a special group with a name like Inactive-users that isn't used for any permissions and put them in that.
