Updating Splunk-Base Email

Hark,

Twas a beautiful morning when the youthful gentleman decided to update his email address in anticipation of yonder changes.
Black magic was afoot that day, for when he modified it in his Splunk.com profile as instructed by the dark temptress Splunk-base, nothing occured. Infact his original email remained in-situ, forever condemning the youthful man into forever receiving notifications to the wrong address...

(I can't change my Splunk-base email address!)

We had an issue previously with older accounts getting out of sync with current splunk.com profile data, so the sync is temporarily disabled and we are planning to have it manually triggered. It should not take more than couple of weeks.

If you are in a hurry (or you have some form of emergency), feel free to email me op@splunk.com and I'll see what I can do to help you out.

(By the way, that was very creative, thank you.)

Its all sorted. Change your email on splunk.com then in your splunkbase profile options there's a button to sync the profiles

The whole point is that the email address will cease to exist 😛

Bit of radical thinking here... How about setting up a forwarding rule and have all your email passed onto your account of choosing. 🙂
