How to change admin username

Created: 23 Sep 2013 | 2 comments

Is there a way to change it everywhere somehow?

The recommended method for changing this account information is to perform a repair of Workflow. It should give you the ability to specify the Admin account again.

Thanks for your response. I checked the repair option (upgrade) but it doesn't let me change the username, only the password.

Please don't forget to mark your thread solved with whatever answer helped you : )
