Trying to rename a Bean type doesn't work too well, more details after I finish a proposal.
Is this still an issue for you?
I was able to edit Bean labels/machine_names without issue.
Funny.. Having this issue months later.
I cannot rename the Bean machine name... I think this might be tied to the fact that I've attached fields and some new display modes..
Yes, renaming the machine name is not a good idea. I didn't think we even allowed it.
This is an issue to allow editing the machine name here: #1365656: Edit machine_code in UI
Though as I type this I reread the title which is bean types. That doesn't surprise me either. We have several layers of cache on top of any references from beans themselves.
This issue has no child issues.
