Severity 3 - Minor
In the same instance, if you had a user with an Atlassian Account in your user management and you deleted that user. You then choose to add this user as a customer in your Service Desk project by providing a customer portal invitation. The customer will be able to create the account but the moment the customer tries to login the customer will be kicked out, with the error message: "Sorry, your email or password are incorrect - please try again."
Steps to Reproduce
- Create a user (firstname.lastname@example.org) via the User Management invitation in the User tab.
- Once the invitation is received, login the account and go through the account creation process for the Atlassian Account.
- Once the user is able to login in to the instance as a user, proceed to delete the user from the User Management page.
- Go to your Service Desk project > Customers > Add Customer > Send a portal invitation to the same email address as before (email@example.com).
- Once the invitation is received, click on the portal invitation > create the account with a username and password
- When logging in, you will get the error "Sorry, you email or password are incorrect - please try again."
- If you cross check each login failure for the customer portal account with the Portal Only Customers tab in the User Management, the "Current Failed Logins" will still show zero.
