How to - Merge Accounts
LinearB is allowing now to merge similar git accounts with different aliases or emails that appear today in LinearB as 2 separated accounts. The problem this issue causes today for users is that even though it’s 2 git accounts in fact it is a single person. Users want to see work and metrics for the person (as one) and not two or more sets of metrics as it appears today.
By letting users control accounts and merge them into a single alias LinearB provides users the option to see all wark and metrics aggregated and summarized under a single account.
Merge accounts management is available through the “People” navigation. Hovering over a single account row will show users a menu option.
Selecting the option to merge a specific account will open a dialog that will provide a list of all available contributors (found in the Git accounts) and the user will be able to select one or more accounts to merge with the original account selected. LinearB will offer the most relevant accounts as merge candidates.
Selecting accounts to be merged will add the selected account to the merge list. The primary user is the user that all other accounts will be merged into, meaning they are getting the alias and teams association of the primary account.
Once accounts are merged all metrics and data of all merged accounts will be calculated into the single merged account.
Merged users are marked with a “merged” icon next to the account’s details. Users can edit and un-merge accounts and revert back to the ‘original’ accounts.
