You have one option for this,

export u r user details into a file.

then in that file you just change your group id (dont change other things) and save it. later on u import the same file into portal.

hope this works...

I have the same problem.

We are using the group name for departments.

How you know department names are dynamically.

So I need to chnage them sometimes.

So I want to change the displayname of that grous, not the id.

How can I do that? And when I cant, can someone explain me the function of the displayname.

Otherwise can I use the UME-API to change it?

Many thanks

Change the name not ID.

So that it will reflect everywhere.

Try copyinging the previous group to a different name.

I think thats not working.

We use the groups in KM objects, for example in Folder and document permissions.

When we create a ne role with the help of an existing group it has no effects to the km objects.

It is logical that i cannot chnage the group id, but it is not logical that i cannot change the displaynam of a group.

Really thanks for helping me
