How do I confirm new email address?

I went to my Atlassian manage profile page and changed my email address. The page now says this:

Update pending verification
We just need you to check your email and confirm your password to verify it’s you and complete the update.

I do get an email, but there's no link or button I can use to confirm. Email looks like this:

You recently changed your email address in your Atlassian account. To confirm the change please check to verify it's really you and complete the update.

This is an really bad UX. I changed email, get email from Atlassian with button "verify email", click button and I was redirected to page where I got info "enter password"...

I logically entered pass for my gmail account, also for new email google account etc... but everything results in "inccorect password"

Could you be so kind to give more information, which password you expecting on verify email link?!

Hi @Milenko Maletić , 

Atlassian accounts maintain a separate password from your Google account. You can use "Continue with Google" on the login screen to use a social sign-on (Apple, Microsoft, and Slack are the other login providers currently).

Without seeing the screen you're referring to, I'd assume it's an Atlassian page (Atlassian logo at the top/bottom), asking you to enter the password for your Atlassian account. If you've lost that password, you can reset it here:

Thanks  for answer, but it did not help. 


I got on my test Jira environment. I changed email to and it is pending... 

I verified link I received on and received that "password thing".

On confirm emal change page I entered atlassian password for but still got inccorect password. 

I can log in to atlassian with and that password.

But I don't want to create new Jira, Confluence environment with

I just want to SIMPLY change to


Why are you making extremely simple things so complicated?

Hi @Milenko Maletić ,

Thank you for explaining with more detail, and I'm sorry to hear you've been having trouble. I think I understand what the situation is.

It sounds like there may be Atlassian accounts associated with both email addresses. For example if you enter account2 into the password reset page and receive a password reset email, that would indicate there is a second Atlassian account.

Currently we cannot merge Atlassian accounts. Only one Atlassian account can be paired with one email address. If you have two Atlassian accounts, they need to be associated with separate emails.

If gmail is you mail provider, you can use aliases to have separate Atlassian accounts deliver mail to the same inbox. In gmail, those work by adding +alias to the end of your email address, before the @ symbol. For example, these addresses would all deliver to the same gmail box (, but could be separate Atlassian accounts:

 Does that sound more in line with the situation you're trying to solve?

I'm having the same issue. I'll wait to see if I get a more meaningful email to complete the email address change.

Hi :)

I want to change my email address, too. My old address also received the message informing me about the requested change, however, my new address has net yet received the confirmation email.

Are there any other steps I can take?

Kind regards,

If the new address hasn't received the confirmation message, send me an email with both addresses (old and new) that you're trying to use for your account and we'll confirm that the emails went through. deads at

Hi Daniel, Im having the same issue, where the confirmation email is received but there is nothing to confirm. Please help.

I have retried this many times , but still the email states


I suddenly received some additional emails with a link. Kind of confusing, but it did the trick.
