Why can't usernames be edited?

Dear Auth0-Team,

while name and email adress can be edited via the Admin Dashboard the username cannot be updated. Why is that?

Thanks in advance for your answer.

Hi @jonathanm ,

I understand that you want to know why the username field is not editable on the dashboard. Unfortunately, this feature is not available yet. Please communicate your use case with our Product team via feedback and upvote it. They monitor feedback closely and might increase the priority if having enough engagement.

Alternatively, you can edit the username by calling the update user endpoint.

{
"username": "xxx"
}

Please let me know if any further queries about this topic. Thanks!
