Hi! I just saw this taskabout the difficulties to change a phabricator account username, but I'm not sure of the conclusion I should make: am I still "young" enough to have my username aligned with my Wikimedia username (Maxlath), or could I create a new user, dissociate the old account from the Wikimedia account, and associate the new one?

Thanks in advance!

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I guess you'd still be young enough for renaming. :)

Technically speaking you can only dissociate your SUL/wiki account after you've associated an LDAP/wikitech/Gerrit account, as Phabricator accounts must have at least one of those two account types associated.

Maxlath (talkcontribs)

cool! Could you make the change or is there an other place where I should make this request?

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Renamed to https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/p/Maxlath/ - you're welcome :)

Is there a place on Phab where I can go to view my entire subscription list and unsubscribe to items I'm no longer interested in?

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I don't think so. https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/maniphest/query/subscribed/ lists all tasks you are subscribed to. Your user page lists projects you are a member of. But afaik there is no way to get a list of projects that you are watching, and no place to get a list in one single place.

As title; what can I do?

@Wetitpig0: Do you use a Wikimedia account or a Labs LDAP account to login?

After login in to phabricator.wikimedia.org using oAuth on mediawiki.org, i have to verify my email-adress. Though i cklicked on button "send another email" i didnt get any verification mail. (My email account works - see: Special:EmailUser/Agruwie)

thanks --Agruwie  talk   15:24, 6 November 2017 (UTC)

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I'm not aware of any issues with mail servers. Are you sure you entered the correct email address? I could also delete the unused Phab account so you could re-register.

Agruwie (talkcontribs)

i can't remember, which email adress is used by phabricator. (My mediawiki email account works - see: Special:EmailUser/Agruwie - i can send test mails ...). I thought (because of oAuth) it's the same adress ... OK, yes please, lets try to delete the account, thanks

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I've deleted the Phab account https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/p/Agruwie/. Please re-register. Thanks!

Agruwie (talkcontribs)

Maybe I'm too stupid, but it still doesn't work ... Should i use another email-adress? Please, delete my account again ...

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Hmm, weird. :( Sorry for all the hassle. Deleted the account again.

Agruwie (talkcontribs)

thanks a lot, now it works (I've sent you an email), best Agruwie

Changing a column to be a board's default

Dario (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@AKlapper (WMF) any idea of how to change the default status of a column in a board? I am looking to make Q2-FY18 the default column in this board.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

The cog dropdown offers to reorder columns, is that what you're looking for?

My Email address being used on another account?

AndromedaNexus (talkcontribs)

Hi! I'm QuantumHunter it seems my email address is being used on another account for some reason I created this email address on outlook.com this year but if this was created originally by someone else but they since then closed the said account then that would explain a lot as to why my address was registered on phabricator.wikimedia.org

I can't use the wanted email address for my Wikipedia account because of it being used in the past by someone else I solely own the outlook.com email address now and would like that the staff of phabricator to unlink the email address for whatever account has my address on it. I think that account is dormant. Is unlinking my email address on phabricator possible? I know it is on github but what about phabricator? I would appreciate any help on this problem. I'm having to use at the moment my secondary email address!

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Hi, You have not explained yet why you think your email address is being used on another account. In general, Phabricator administrators cannot easily remove email adresses of user accounts. Even if we could, we'd need some verification information, I'm afraid.

AndromedaNexus (talkcontribs)

And how do I give verification information to you? What do I need to do to link my main outlook.com email address which I'm using on Wikipedia to the phabricator?

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I don't know, because I don't know how to check that some certain email address belongs to some certain person. And I don't have access to run some Phab database query to check which email address is linked to which Phab user.

AndromedaNexus (talkcontribs)

Is there a way for me to get a "forgot password/username" with the email address provided on the system then I could link a different email address to that one then remove the wanted email address and link it to this account.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Not that I know, because Phabricator does not expose email addresses of its user accounts (except for in git commit messages).

AndromedaNexus (talkcontribs)

I have tried to use my main email address but states that its being used by another "unknown" account which I'm not sure what account. I would appreciate some help on this?

Whatamidoing (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Did you ever have another Wikipedia account that might have used the same e-mail address?

AndromedaNexus (talkcontribs)

Nope! That's why I have no idea why my email account is being used by another account. But like I stated earlier if someone did create my email account first then closed it and Microsoft released it to be used by someone else then that would explain a bit like some other person had that said email account before and did something on phabricator or on Wikipedia though I have no other account on Wikipedia the only one I did have was renamed officially to QuantumHunter so that the account isn't personal and my name remains private.

Cannot verify wrong email for new phabricator account

Summary by AKlapper (WMF)

Solved by deleting the (unused) Phabricator account so the user can re-register with a valid email address for verification.

Gianttrombone (talkcontribs)

Hello,

When trying to sign in to https://phabricator.wikimedia.org for the first time, I typed in the wrong email address, and I don't have access to the one I entered. Hence, I cannot get or answer the "verify email address" email, nor can I change my email address, so I've locked myself out of phabricator.

Would you kindly look into the issue?

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I destroyed the unused account https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/p/gianttrombone/ which was linked to https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/User:Gianttrombone . Please try re-registering in Phabricator. Thanks!

NikitaI (talkcontribs)

I have this trouble too.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Please provide your Phabricator user name

NikitaI (talkcontribs)

Nivalis

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

There is no such user: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/p/Nivalis/

NikitaI (talkcontribs)

You must verify your email address to log in. You should have a new email message from Phabricator with verification instructions in your inbox (my_wrong_e-mail).

If you did not receive an email, you can click the button below to try sending another one.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

There is no such user "Nivalis" in the database. Hence there is nothing I could reset.

NikitaI (talkcontribs)

May be NikitaI?

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/p/NikitaI/ existed and had not been used. I've deleted that account. You should be able to re-register.

MidleadingBot (talkcontribs)

Hello, I'm not a bot. My account "Midleading" has been locked out of "Phabricator" because I typed a wrong email and cannot get it verified. Can you help me or should I continue logging in "Phabricator" with this account?

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Is there a reason that it's not the "Midleading" account on mediawiki.org (which is bound to the Phab account named "Midleading") is requesting this, but some unrelated "MidleadingBot" account that cannot be verified?

Midleading (talkcontribs)

I cannot log into Phabricator. Please help me remove my email address.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I've removed the unused account https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/p/midleading/ so you can re-register with a correct email address

Welcome to the help page for Phabricator. As your question is not about Phabricator itself, please refer to Project:Support desk and provide way more information ("does not install" is way too vague). Thanks!
