User name does not change

Hello I changed the first and last name of a user account. The name changes in the home page but does not automatically change in that user’s personal collection. I tried reloading the page with no change. Am I missing something?

Hi @gatalec
Which version of Metabase?
Where are you changing the name - in Account Settings or Admin Settings > People?
Is it a regular user or are they connected through SSO (Google, LDAP)?

Hi, I am sorry, I should have added the specifics:

  • Version 0.32.5
  • I changed the name while logged in as an administrator in the Admin settings | People | Edit User.

The changes did take effect: when I go to All Personal collections, I see that user’s collection with the new name. However if I click on it, it displays below “our analytics” " Personal Collection.

I logged out and logged in as the user and the same results (old name) appear.

Okay, so this is only about Collection name? Might have overlooked that in the first post.
Changing the user first/last-name does not change the Collection name already created. You will have to do that manually.

I looked for that, but did not find the option to change the name of a collection, just to see the archive.

Thank you for your help!

Hmmm… I can see that now. Not sure how this should be handled - if you should allow editing the collection or have the system automatically rename the collection, when the user is edited.
Can you create an issue on this - I cannot find any issues related to this:
As a workaround, you can edit the name in of the metadata backend database.
