Change owner in OEM 12c ruleset

How does one change the owner of a ruleset in Oracle OEM / Cloud Control 12c? I can find nothing on it in any of the documentation.

I don't know if OEM12c offers a supported way to do this directly.  We had a similar problem in OEM12c recently where we wanted to change the owner of some jobs and credentials.   After I opened an SR on this with Oracle Support (and was told: "that is not supported") I learned that if/when you delete an OEM user, OEM allows you to specify the name of a different user to transfer the objects to that belonged to the user who is being deleted.  That may (or may not) include rules like this.

You may want to create a test user, then create a rule for that user, then drop that user and provide the name of another user to transfer this user's OEM objects to, then see if the rule is preserved and transferred (or if it gets dropped along with the user).

As I found from the Oracle support team for OEM:

"Log with new owner, select ruleset, click on 'create like ruleset'. When creation has ended, drop old ruleset."

This affects all versions of OEM including Grid Control 12c.
