Change associated Google ID?


(Thomas Smyth) #1

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.

Thanks!

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…

tomsmyth@gmail.com and tom@sassafras.coop 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 tom@sassafras.coop Google Acct with tomsmyth. But I’m not sure how.
