I think you can just change the subject_id field in the database table
grouper_members for that record. The reason for memberChangeSubject is there
will be a foreign key problem if the new subject exists. Shilen, let me know
if you disagree here. Kumi, if this is what you want to do, you can do that
directly in the DB or I can give you GSH to do this... note, if the old
subject is still being resolved and used after you make the change, it will
create a new grouper_members record for the old subject again.

Subject: [grouper-users] Changing a userName(subjectId)


I'm hoping that someone can point me in the right direction. I'd like to be
able to update a username (subjectId) when user's name is updated in the data
At first this MemberChangeSubject seemed like the solution,
but it looks like the new and old subject must already exist and it updates
the membership details, not the subject details. In my case, the new subject
doesn't exist. Is there a way to update the subjectId of the old/existing
