Hi folks,

as I mentioned in an e-mail earlier this week
( )
SUSE and openSUSE are carving out remaining IT assets from Micro Focus
this spring.

This includes identity management (= user accounts).

The existing system that you likely have been using is split into
two distinct systems (and hence accounts):

(1) One for openSUSE infrastructure and SUSE's development tools,
think Bugzilla, Build Service (OBS), openSUSE Wiki,...

(2) And one for SUSE's customers and partners, think SUSE Customer
Center (SCC), Partner Portal,...

Ad (1): Details on the transition for Bugzilla and other openSUSE
systems are available at

That page is going to be updated regularly -> a good bookmark.

Different services migrate one by one over the coming weeks, so be
prepared to still use your "old" account in some places during that

Ad (2): If you have received an e-mail with the subject "New SUSE User
Accounts - partners and customers" and all you care is openSUSE or the
tools mentioned above, you probably can ignore that (unless you also
are a SUSE customer or are interested in some of SUSE's other programs
such as the SUSE Developer Program). :->


PS: Don't shoot the messenger; merely trying to jump in and share.
Thanks to Simon, Adrian, Marcus, and Daniel for caring and input!

I don't want to shoot the messenger, but it would have been very nice to
receive this information before SUSE's e-mail regarding "New SUSE User
Accounts - partners and customers" arrived (see also the discussion at

Anyway, thanks for the clarification.

Regards, Frank
