LocalUsernamesToLowerCase - Convert the local username of every account to lower case


java -jar gerrit.war _LocalUsernamesToLowerCase
  -d <SITE_PATH>


Converts the local username for every account to lower case. The local username is the username that is used to login into the Gerrit Web UI.

This task is only intended to be run if the configuration parameter ldap.localUsernameToLowerCase was set to true to achieve case insensitive LDAP login to the Gerrit Web UI.

Please be aware that the conversion of the local usernames to lower case can’t be undone.

The program will produce errors if there are accounts that have the same local username, but with different case. In this case the local username for these accounts is not converted to lower case.

This task can run in the background concurrently to the server if the database is MySQL or PostgreSQL. If the database is H2, this task must be run by itself.



Location of the gerrit.config file, and all other per-site configuration data, supporting libraries and log files.


Number of threads to perform the scan work with. Defaults to twice the number of CPUs available.


This command can only be run on a server which has direct connectivity to the metadata database.
