You can change the name of a namespace any time, except while the S3 compatible, CIFS, or NFS protocol is enabled for the namespace. However, when you change the name, the URL for the namespace may change as well.

When you change the name of a namespace, AD single sign-on is automatically disabled for the REST API for that namespace. You can reenable it any time after the name change (as long as HCP can communicate with AD).

Tip: Be sure to notify the namespace users when you change the name of a namespace.
To change the name of a namespace, you need the administrator role.
  1. In the top-level menu of the Tenant Management Console, click Namespaces.
  2. In the list of namespaces, click the name of the namespace you want.
  3. In the row of tabs below the namespace name, click Settings.
  4. On the left side of the Settings panel, click Name.
  5. In the New Namespace Name field in the Name panel, type the new name for the namespace.
  6. Click Update Name.
