#9863 Cannot login to redhat bugzilla
Opened 23 days ago by crvi. Modified 22 days ago

Describe what you would like us to do:

  1. My original bugzilla email id: crvisqr@gmail.com
  2. FAS account email id: crvi@fedoraproject.org

I updated my bugzilla email id from [1] to [2] and now I cannot login:

I get the following errors:

  1. Choose/Create an Account:

Red Hat Bugzilla could not map your Fedora Account System account to an existing Bugzilla account. Would you like to create an account for "crvisqr@gmail.com"?

  1. Trying yes for the above results in another error:

There is already an account with the login name crvisqr@gmail.com.

  1. Resetting password results in another error:

You have requested a password token too recently to request another. Please wait 10 minutes then try again.

When do you need this to be done by? (YYYY/MM/DD)

As soon as possible please.

Your [1] and [2] footnotes seem missing?

Looking I dont' see you bugzilla email set at all...

Can you make sure and clear any cookies from *fedoraproject.org and retry?

Your [1] and [2] footnotes seem missing?

No. I meant I changed my email address from crvisqr@gmail.com to crvi@fedoraproject.org, since I now have a @fedoraproject.org id, which seems more appropriate for fedora related stuff like bugzilla.redhat.com. And that messed up everything.

Now I have received an email as follows:

"Fedora Account System and Bugzilla Mismatch"

However, resetting the password of crvisqr@gmail.com or crvi@fedoraproject.org, doesn't seem to work.

  1. Resetting password of crvisqr@gmail.com gives the following error:

crvisqr@gmail.com user does not exist

  1. Resetting password of crvi@fedoraproject.org gives the following error:

You have requested a password token too recently to request another. Please wait 10 minutes then try again.

Can you login to https://accounts.fedoraproject.org ?

Can you then set 'crvi@fedoraproject.org' in the bugzilla email field?

Can you then login to bugzilla.redhat.com using the "Login using Fedora account system" option?

All issues resolved after resetting password of crvi@fedoraproject.org in bugzilla. Problem was I was using "Duplicate Tabs closer" Firefox plugin which was messing up with the password reset action uri, causing it to fail repeatedly.

"Login using Fedora account system" doesn't work still. I using direct username ( crvi@fedoraproject.org ) / password now, which works.


ok. I think that may be a bug in the new account system. I guess lets leave this open to track that (it should let you login that way).

@puiterwijk is there a way to get ipsilon to do this? ie, for bugzilla.redhat.com send ipa bugzilla address (if populated) otherwise email address?
