I have seen many questions about people asking to merge ID's. But this is a little different, as I am trying to determine if I even should do that.
I suspect my situation will be similar to many:
On bitbucket I have a personal account, my day job account/team, and my side-job account/team, Currently, I just use my personal email address for all, and forward emails to the day-job email, or side-job email according to Gmail filters.
I manage a JIRA instance for my day-job (day-job-email) and side-job (side-job-email).
My side-job also uses Confluence (day-job-email).
By using my personal for BB, it means two sign in's to jump between BB to JIRA or to Confluence. With TFA enabled, this is pretty annoying. There are a few other annoyances with these being seperate.
Everyone seems to want to merge their ID's. I think merging ID's would be a mess for me.
I think the ideal would be the ability for the Atlassian ID to have multiple email addresses associated with it, and for each service-instance, you can choose one of those email addresses to be communicated on.
Putting everything under my personal email is not an option, as my companies require you use company email for JIRA. I think this is common.
Then my option is to keep everything separate. This would mean creating a few more bitbucket accounts... uggh. I imagine that will make SourceTree crater (but what doesn't).
How are others managing this situation? Are their plans to make this better?
