You would in this case probably want to write something to also perform the rename of the user in Grouper via memberChangeSubject (assuming the username is the subjectID and LDAP is the subject source).

As near as I can tell if an account in the LDAP server is renamed there is nothing that can tell grouper loader to re-sync the groups that contain that user correct?

I can use referential integrity to have the LDAP server itself catch changes, but if we are trying to support POSIX groups that doesn't work since referential integrity only works with "GroupOfNames" or more specifically attributes "member" and "uniqueMember".

Is the BulkSync the only way to pick up those changes, or did I miss something?
