hi torgeir

if you are referring to the userID: this can't be changed.
moving/renaming a user node will only change the node name
but the internal id used for the lookup (uuid) will not be

changing the principal name on the other hand would be a different
story and has nothing to do with the userId. the principal
name is the link to all the access control content for Principal
represented by the given user.

currently, the only way to change the userID while keeping
the other user data was to create a new user and copy over
the other information. the old user should be disabled.
