It's not possible to edit the Component Lead and assign it to specific users. Below error message is shown:
- Have a project and some Components (Component One and Two)
- Have a user and rename it (i.e from John to A)
- Assign it to users (A: affected user, B: not affected)
- Edit both components
- Component One with A as the Component Lead shows grey avatar icon instead of their uploaded avatar and the old username
- Component Two with B as the Component Lead shows the uploaded avatar but when I assign A as the new Component Lead, below error is displayed.
- Component One with A as the Component Lead shows their uploaded avatar and the new username
- Able to assign A as the new Component Lead in Component Two.
Users can still create a new component with the affected users (A) as the Component Lead, but not editing the existing one.
Update the component lead using REST API:
In order to quickly gather components for the project via REST API:
