Comment 1 Alexander Bokovoy 2015-11-19 06:15:27 EST
User renaming is done with 'ldapmodrdn' utility. FreeIPA does not provide user renaming support.

This is not really a bug.
Comment 2 Rob Crittenden 2015-11-19 09:04:21 EST
IPA has supported renaming for ages.

$ ipa user-mod --rename newuser olduser

The bug (or perhaps RFE) is apparently that staging users cannot be renamed.
Comment 3 swathi b venugopal 2015-11-19 13:36:55 EST
In staging user we cannot rename the user but in active user we can rename it and 
i am finding that bug in active users
