Unable to push user email change from the Identity Provider into the Atlassian organization with Atlassian Access.


  • Atlassian Cloud products
  • Atlassian Access


Resource [USER]: with email[name@domain.com] already exists.


This happens when an account is provisioned with emailA@domain.com from the Identity Provider and later the email is changed within the Identity Provider to emailB@domain.com but there is already another Atlassian account using the email.

  • This other Atlassian account might have been created by the user on self sign-up or site administrator through invitation, for example.


The problem can be solved by releasing the email from the other Atlassian account, changing it to something else, such as emailB+duplicated@domain.com, then pushing the email change from the Identity Provider for the main account again.
