Changed team URL by DB is it safe?

I have found workaround for changeing team’s URL using database update on
But On that ticket someone asked an important question about an impact of that action.
Is it safe for data consistency to change team name (URL) in data base?

Hi, @piotr.gryzlo

In general, any direct database manipulation can cause data inconsistencies. I noticed in the MM-1546 that there were questions around side effects of the SQL query:

UPDATE teams SET name='<newname>' WHERE id='<teamid>';

Checking on the Teams table, the Name column is a unique key:

mysql> SHOW COLUMNS FROM Teams LIKE "Name";
| Field | Type        | Null | Key | Default | Extra |
| Name  | varchar(64) | YES  | UNI | NULL    |       |
1 row in set (0.01 sec)

So, I won’t recommend to do it. If you decide to proceed, please make sure you backup the database to make sure that you have a working backup that you can roll back to. Thanks.
