Allow admins to disable users ability to change profile name
Problem to solve
Currently, users are allowed to change their profile name and
Administrators cannot prevent this action. This activity can negatively impact the integrity of audit events within GitLab. Customers need confidence their audit events are accurate (and therefore reliable) for reporting and compliance management purposes. The reliability of user identification is a key component of all compliance frameworks since an organization must be able to prove who did what.
Provide an instance-level setting for
Administrators to prevent a user from changing their profile name.
|Admin Panel View||header|
Administratorscan still modify a
User'sname if this setting is enabled
