Changing vendor name related to keys

Hello, I recently changed my vendor name from my personal legal name to my company name. The code signing keys I have seem to still be registered to my personal name (which can be viewed for instance in the debug token on the Playbook). Is there any way to update that too?

 

For reference, I have the files author.p12, barsigner.csk, barsigner.db, client-PBDT-*.csj, client-RDK-*.csj

Re: Changing vendor name related to keys

Yes this can be done.  First, back up your existing keys:  Backup and Restore BlackBerry Code Signing Keys

 

Then, rename/delete your existing author.p12 file and create a new one with your new company name.  Do NOT delete the barsigner files.  If you need help creating a new p12 file let me know which SDK you are using.

Re: Changing vendor name related to keys

Thanks! This was enough for me to find out the rest. I did notice that it would not accept special chars, spitting out "incorrect ava format", however based on a Stack Overflow post I found out I could use escaped chars, so all is good!
