We need to rename groups. We need the workaround to do this whether it be a plugin or the SQL statements to perform this as some of these groups have 100+ users. Recreating these are not an option due to the large user memberships involved.
You must do this via SQL as it cannot be accomplished within Confluence.
First, backup your SQL database. Then run this simple modification to the cwd_group.
Just modify the group_name field to whatever you would like the group named
The SQL statement to run is as follows:
Update cwd_group set group_name='<new_group_name>', lower_group_name='<new_group_name>' where lower_group_name='<old_group_name>';
There are some workarounds described in the "rename groups" feature request:
Be sure to back up your data before you try any script or database workaround.
Please vote for and comment on the feature request as well so we can get this thing prioritized.
