I can't seem to figure out how to let users change their own username. I'm running Aegir with about 10 Open Atrium sites. With permissions I've checked "change own username" for the master Aegir site, as well as the Open Atrium sites. For giggles, I enabled every role to "change own username"..

But when I try to change my username in OpenAtrium and click save, it confirms "changes have been saved", but the username doesn't actually change. This has ballooned into a huge issue for us. I'm hoping there is some obvious dumb thing I need to do. Thoughts?

  • That's done in permissions. In Drupal 7, go to admin/people/permissions and look under User: Change own username. – Bisonbleu Apr 15 '13 at 21:55
  • I realize this should be obvious – Ramanonos Apr 15 '13 at 21:58
  • Here you can see I "change own username" permission checked off for ALL Aegir and ALL Open Atrum roles. screencast.com/t/iLheAUAYJAvM – Ramanonos Apr 15 '13 at 21:59
  • However when I change the username on my profile page and click save it doesn't change the username -- but it doesn't throw an error either. Just says "Changes have been saved." Nope – Ramanonos Apr 15 '13 at 22:02
  • Sorry. I guess I read/answered too quickly... :-( – Bisonbleu Apr 15 '13 at 22:02

Changing a username inside a hosted site is completely up to the OpenAtrium Drupal installation. Aegir does not usually interact with this.

I just verified that it works OK on a clean Aegir 3 install with a standard Drupal site.

So @Bisonbleu's comment seems correct:

That's done in permissions. In Drupal 7, go to admin/people/permissions and look under User: Change own username.
