The name of this plugin should be "Project identifier rename"... But project identifier aliases are what makes the renaming possible! They allow to access project pages using different identifiers in URL thus any of such identifiers can be made a project identifier. All that is needed for this is to move the previous identifier to aliases (this is done by replacing the alias, which has just been made a project identifier). That's how this plugin does the trick!

This is a fork of the Project identifier alias/rename plugin which seems to be no longer maintained by its creator.
_The original plugin also contains versions compatible to Redmine 1.4 - 2.5 whereas this plugin is only compatible with Redmine 2.6 - 3.2
