Edit Managed Apple ID formats in Apple School Manager
In some cases, it may be necessary to change the Managed Apple ID for several accounts or all locations. For example, if the domain name of the institution changes. Managers who have the “Create, edit, and delete Managed Apple IDs” privilege can edit the Managed Apple ID of user accounts.
After you change the Managed Apple ID, active users can sign in using their new Managed Apple ID and existing password. If the new format includes an element that’s missing or empty for that user, the user’s Managed Apple ID won’t be updated. If the new format results in a Managed Apple ID that’s already in use, a number is added to the end of the new Managed Apple ID to make it unique.
There are two options when changing Managed Apple ID formats:
Change the Managed Apple ID format for all locations: This changes the format for all new users. Existing users still use the original format.
Change the Managed Apple ID format for users: This changes the format for all new and existing users.
Important: Users aren’t notified when their Managed Apple ID is changed, so you must notify them as soon as you make the change.
