Business value

Currently the publisher and name information is part of the identity of an extension, and this information therefore can't be changed in AppSource. Over time, however, both product name and publisher name might change due to rebranding or acquisitions, so being able to change the name or publisher of an extension is valuable.

Feature details

The app identity has been changed to only include app ID and version, leaving publisher and app name optional, mainly for human readability purposes, such as in dependencies or telemetry. This allows changing the app name or publisher, for example, due to rebranding. Note that when doing so, the version must be updated as well because a change like that is still seen as a revision of the extension. Also, workspaces with project dependencies still resolve by name and publisher and will have to be updated if the identity information of the project is changed.
