ok, so I am trying to look at how to do that, but I am not yet having a idea on how to do that, cause I do not understand our gerrit setup (like, I do not understand where the email are stored, for a start...). 
When was last time you used the other account ? Do you have the account ID, by any luck ?

Comment 2 Sanju 2019-10-06 14:00:09 UTC
I used it a few months ago, may be 3 months back. and I don't have account ID.

Comment 3 M. Scherer 2019-11-06 16:21:20 UTC
so, I found that doc from Nigel: https://gluster-infra-docs.readthedocs.io/infra_overview/gerrit.html who suggest to modify the table. I will try to look more for that, cause that's the only clue I do have right now

Comment 4 M. Scherer 2019-11-20 13:31:53 UTC
so, your old account is 1002064 , I used https://github.com/talwrii/curlfire and some clues from https://github.com/davido/gerrit-oauth-provider/issues/107 to get that. Now, I just need to figure how and what I should change for it.

Comment 5 Sanju 2019-11-20 14:23:03 UTC
Thanks for the update Misc! If you can delete the old account, I will link my new account with redhat email id.

Comment 6 M. Scherer 2019-11-20 14:32:18 UTC
well, I kinda wonder what happen to the old review if I delete the account. I am trying to figure the internals of gerrit before doing something bad. They changed everything, so I can't just dig in the DB like everybody did before :/

Comment 7 Sanju 2019-11-20 14:40:13 UTC
Yeah, that's an issue. It would be great if we can figure out a way to login into my old account.

Comment 8 Sanju 2019-12-02 06:29:08 UTC
As I'm unable to login into my redhat gerrit account which has merge rights, can I please get merge rights for my new gerrit ID?
Gerrit ID: 1002248

Please, do let me know, if you need anything else.


Comment 9 Deepshikha khandelwal 2019-12-19 09:04:27 UTC
