Gerrit: Cannot assign user name "msyn" to account 7123; name already in use.
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

I cannot login to gerrit with my (otherwise functional) wikitech account. After trying to login, it tells me:

Cannot assign user name "msyn" to account 7123; name already in use.

In T220867 I was told to file a separate request for my account. However, as it was not that simple to figure out what is wrong here, I suggest to fix this problem for all affected users without this kind of bureaucracy on a per-user basis. I already had to wait almost two weeks with no progress now.

@MisterSynergy sorry I missed your username on T220867 :(

We plan to fix this for all potentially affected users as part of our next upgrade, but there are (as always) problems nested in problems. For now I'm playing whack-a-mole manually fiddling in the database/user git repo.

Sorry again for the delay -- your user should be fixed now. Please reopen if you still have trouble logging in.
