Changing email id - User is both managed and unmanaged


I am trying to updated a users' email id from to Both the old and new domains are 'approved domains' in the Org Setup (not verified domains).

I visit the user's profile page to edit their email id, and I cannot see the edit email id option even though I am Global Admin. 

I ask the user to do it themselves at but they see an error - Your Account is managed, contact admin to change your email address. 

So I visit admin -> organization -> managed accounts section and I see "you have no managed users". 

How do I change this person's email id?

Hello Phalgun,

Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community!

Since Atlassian account was introduced some years ago, administrators can no longer change the users' email address, unless the domain is verified.

I can see that the domain is not verified (the same of your email address) and that you didn't subscribe Atlassian access and since we don't know the affected email, we can't tell what happened in this case.

On your site, there are more than 1500 users with different email domains, so it will be complicated for us to help you without knowing the affected user/domain.

A user can use the same email address on multiple sites, so probably the domain was claimed on another Cloud site.

Since the community is public, it's up to you and the owner of the email address to share the email address here, and if you don't feel comfortable doing that, please contact our support on in order to share with them the affected email address.
