Changing user name

help

#1

Is it possible to change the username for an ownCloud account? (Not the full name.)


#2

Hi,

no this is not possible. However you can create a new user with a new username and transfer its files via this occ command:

https://doc.owncloud.org/server/latest/admin_manual/configuration_files/file_sharing_configuration.html#transferring-files-to-another-user

Thanks, @RealRancor. Would that also transfer calendars and contacts?


#4

The title of that linked documentation says "Transferring Files to Another User", so most likely no.


#5

Btw. a feature request to transfer calendars is available here:

If it is a single user, he/she can export the calendar/contacs of the old user-id and import it with the new one.
