[slurm-users] Changing a user's default account

I have a user U who is in association with account A, and I want to change that to account B.   The obvious thing does not work:

$ sacctmgr modify user where user=”U” set defaultaccount=”B”
Can't modify because these users aren't associated with new default account “B”…

OK, fair enough.    But I can’t find a good way to meet this requirement!   “sacctmgr create assoc” does not seem to be a thing.   Googling around I see a lot of wags deleting and recreating the user in this situation, which I definitely do _not_ want to do.

How does one change the account that a user is tied to?
