Can't associate google id with account

Issue #6748 invalid
created an issue

My account is miebster.

When I try to login with my google account I see the following message:

We noticed that there is an existing Bitbucket account associated with your email address. Log in to connect it with Google!

So I enter my password and click next. I then get this error (100% of the time).

Something went wrong.

You can contact support or create a public issue if the problem persists.

This might be useful in debugging the problem:


So I tried to create an account on the support website (why can't I use my bitbucket account for bitbucket support? seems really silly). But I can't create a support account because I never receive a confirmation email.

I've clicked the re-send verification link a few times, it never works. I'm using gmail so I doubt that i sthe problem. Also I have received other bitbucket emails just fine, just not the support account verification.

    I used to have it associated with my team account "pretalen". I removed that association from the "pretalen" account management tab.

    I'm a little surprised that I can't have a team account with the same email address as my personal account, which was the cause for this whole mess. I should be able to manage teams without having to create a new email address for each one.

    Also, the email I get when this issue is updated doesn't contain a link to this issue. This seems very odd, it would be really issue to link to the issue page from the email.
