How to mass update the display name just after "Created By", "Modified By"

  Asked By: Blur    Date: Oct 31    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1735

Hi All,


The "created by" and "modified by" is displaying the name field of the user profile.

When I manually update the name for 1 user via the UI, the display name is showing the user name and at Database, the column UserInfo.tp_Title shows the updated username.

Thus, I tried to do a update for another user at Database level to update the column UserInfo.tp_Title. The record was successfully updated but then I go in to sharepoint to see, the "created by" and "modified by" is still displaying the previous Login ID instead of the User Name. I cleared my cache and tried again, it is still not showing the update username.

I have 2000 users with the user login ID incorrectly saved as the user name. How to do a mass update to user name for sharepoint users? What command/script can I run in Powershell?

Current server is Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition SP2 running Sharepoint 3.0

Thanks in advance
