Hi @yoann lemaire ,


To rename a user in Jira,

  • navigate to the user management section from the JIRA ADMINISTRATION cogwheel.  
  • Search for the respective user and click on the edit button to rename the user (as shown below).
  • Below is the edit screen you will see, once you click on the edit.



In order to update a single user/bulk update, you can also use a third-party app like JIra Command Line Interface



I don't have this interface...
