I signed up on a forum with a personal Google ID and now I want to associate my account with my new work G Suite ID instead because it’s a work-related thing.
Is this possible? Admin is willing to work with me but he doesn’t know how either.
There are site settings for the google analytics, just change them.
Jay, I don’t think he is referring to analytics but his personal login method.
Identity in Discourse is tied to your email address. Do both Google accounts map to the same email address?
Oops. It sounded so complicated I thought it must have had to do with analytics.
@tomsmyth1, you should be able to change your address from your profile page. Click your avatar and then the gear icon. There should be a pencil icon next to your email address to change it there. If not, the site admin will need to enable the
email editable site setting.
So that’s the confusing part…
firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com are totally separate Google accounts.
I have two accounts on this forum (due to a migration artifact) and I have changed my email addresses on each of them. But I can only login with the old associate Google accounts.
Here is the setup:
As you can see it’s a big mess. I just want to abandon tomsmyth-inactive and associate firstname.lastname@example.org Google Acct with tomsmyth. But I’m not sure how.
Please see this topic for an explanation of the problem and a workaround:
I have one very active user on my discourse. Everything was fine until a moment when user changed surname and changed his email account. He logged on to discourse thu google authorisation. He changed his email in profile however linked google profile is pointing to an old google account and therefore he got 500 error as in profile email is new but linked google profile is pointing to an old email .
How to overcome this issue?
