Hey there! How do I make posts from the @system account? I’ve been wondering as it’s our “Official Notice” account.
There are two options I see here. The first is that you post something and then transfer ownership of your post / topic to system. This can be done by going to the post admin wrench and selecting ‘Change Ownership’
The second option is to Impersonate system by going to
https://your-site-name/admin/users/-1/system and scrolling down to the bottom until you see this
This will be next to the merge, delete and anonymise user buttons.
I believe that for this to work, your email must be in the developer email in the yml? (someone can correct me here if I’m wrong)
Hope this helped
You’re correct. You can only impersonate admins (including system and discobot) if your email is listed as a developer email in yml.
There is a third option although I don’t recommend this personally. You can post as system via the API by using an admin generated API key that is valid for all users
Thanks for your help!
