Hi Arne and welcome to Atlassian Community!

Just for further clarification, are your seeing this message on
If so, you must check with the administrator of your SSO to change your email.
When someone verifies a domain, they become the admin for the organization and they are able to change the email and some other information about the managed users, so even if you are an admin for your instance, if you were not added as an admin of the org or if you don't have access to Azure to manage the accounts, you won't be able to change your own email.


A classic Atlassian catch 22.  We use gsuite. Regardless of what account I use (org / site admin - same account as the super admin for Gsuite) I can't change the email on the account.  It always says 'it is set by your Admin'.
