Rename an administrator?

Hi,

 

I am trying to rename an administrator in our Meraki dashboard due to a spelling mistake, but the option to change the name is greyed out. Can I rename an administrator or do I need to delete and re-create the account?

 

Thanks,

Pete

Kind of a big deal

I think you have to delete and re-create.

Yeah, this part sucks. We changed email domains and had to manually add the users back into the dashboard, then remove the old “user” vs. just being able to change the email.  

Hi Philip, hi all,

 

I think you can change the admin's name using the Dashboard API.

At least, I've successfully done this on one of my Customers this morning using this Windows batch command:

 

.\curl --max-time 3 --proxy proxy.intra.company.com:8090 -L -H "X-Cisco-Meraki-API-Key:***mykey***" -H "Content-Type:application/json" -X PUT --data-binary "{\"name\":\"Michael Fox (newco)\"}" "https://n213.meraki.com/api/v0/organizations/<orgID>/admins/<adminID>"

Of course, you need to install curl and all required certs first and insert some details (name of proxy server, your API key, orgID, adminID), but it worked for me!

 

Regards, AE
