Change display name admin

I am using Nextcloud 18.0.3 on Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS and my webserver is nginx.

I just installed Nextcloud and defined a user which is the admin of the Nextcloud. I am looking for a way to also define the display name of the admin.

How do I do that?

Best regards,
Guido

What about “Settings > Personal > Full Name”?

I am sorry, my question was incomplete.
I had configure Nextcloud, entered the URL in the browser. In this screen I enter the name of the administrator, the password and the database settings.
After browsing through the next screens, I exit the browser and add other users through the OCC command. I would like to modify the admin’s full name using the OCC command also.

The occ command provides a lot of function to change data, liek e.g. ./occ user:settings {users} settings ... but it seems that it’s not yet possible to change the full name (display_name) of a user.

Hi everyone,

It seems to be possible on NC 21 !

cloud$ php occ user:setting <username> settings display_name "<The Name>"

worked for me.
on NC21 you can see all settings in an app > setting tree with

cloud$ php occ user:setting <username> settings
