#22 Mismatch in Zanata username and FAS name
Closed: Invalid 3 years ago by jibecfed. Opened 6 years ago by pravins.

During virtual Translation sprint, i noticed at least 4-5 members have different Zanata user name than FAS name.

Part of the problem is also Zanata not collecting user FAS name from open id. It will get resolved soon. https://zanata.atlassian.net/browse/ZNTA-855

Its very tricky to change username and only possible solution is create proper user name as per FAD and migrate date from existing username to newone.

Please note that we should only get the list of different usernames and "merge" them AFTER the ticket gets fixed, otherwise we'll end up with more disparities.


  1. We need to identify users getting impacted by this.
    - Alex can help here by running sql query to find user with different username than FAD.
  2. Notify users before making any change.

This ticket waiting for fix of https://zanata.atlassian.net/browse/ZNTA-855

  • Waiting on Alex for listing down users with mismatch in Zanata and FAS username.

https://github.com/zanata/zanata-server/pull/1173 is already implemented. Will be available in Zanata 4.0.

The work in #37 should also help us for this work.
Alex said we will do the cleanup once it's live (I have no schedule about this).

with Zanata killed by Red Hat, from what I know, this issue doesn't required to be solved anymore. Thank you for all the job done. Please re-open if I'm wrong :/
