Hello,

I want to rename a user.
When I use the "Modify User" part, I can type in a new last name, but the displayname and the fullname remain with the old value.
I tried to update the two properties with a rule.
Displayname works, but Fullname not. It cannot be upated, it belongs to the system account.

How can I do this ?

Thank you
Thorsten
