    Atlassian Update – 31 December 2015

    Hi everyone,

    Thanks for voting and commenting on this issue. Your feedback is key to helping us understand how you use JIRA so we can continue improving your experience. We have reviewed this issue over the last few days; however there are not currently any plans to implement this suggestion.

    When we released JIRA 6 with support for renaming users, we considered this feature as well as our team was focused on managing the issues with users in JIRA and external directories; however, we elected not to delay the release of JIRA 6 by implementing it.

    Since this request was first created, user management in JIRA has become much more complex. Many of our customers use LDAP directories, integrate JIRA with Google Apps, and in the future will connect other SSO providers via SAML (ID-80). Therefore, we will need to re-evaluate the best way to support this at our next opportunity.

    Please remember that jira.atlassian.com is one of many inputs for the JIRA roadmap. You can learn more about our process here.

    I understand that our decision may be disappointing. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

    Regards,
    Dave Meyer

    Product Manager, JIRA Platform

    Original request description:

    As a JIRA administrator I am responsible for managing a large installation with multiple users and groups. Given the dynamic nature of my environment it is very difficult for me to create the correct user group name which can be used for many projects later on. I need to be able to rename the user groups, to reflect the changes my organisation undergoes.
