[Closed] User Sync #1
Changing a username in Joomla results in a new Moodle user being created. Preferred behavior would have the existing Moodle user altered to match so progress is not lost.

Joomdle does not support username changing, as username is used to match Joomla and Moodle users.
While I guess a process could be developed to allow it, we have not done so yet, as we didn't see many requests about it.

If you need a username as admin, a workaround is to:
- disable joomdlehooks plugin
- Change username in Joomla and in Moodle separately
- enable plugin again

I will move this thread to Feature Requests, so we can try to add it in the future.

Thank you for adding this to the next release. Is there any timeline for the release of 1.0.8?

I am not trying to rush things, nor will I hold you folks to anything you say. I am just trying to understand a ballpark timing for that release so I can set expectations accordingly on my end.

I appreciate any information you can give.

We don't really have a planned release date, but I think we should try to get it out before the end of the month.

I have 1.0.8 installed, and I am still getting the following error message if I try to change a username in Joomla:
Save failed with the following error: This username and/or email is already in use in Moodle. Please choose a different one
Is there something that I need to enable to make this work? Or should it just work as long as I have 1.0.8 installed?
