Change Identity user's email

I initially stood up my Netlify CMS instance on my site with a gmail account as the primary admin. I am trying get rid of that email account entirely, but I do not see an option to change my site’s admin login to my new preferred email.

I’ve made the change in my Netlify account, but it does not transfer to my site’s admin.

Does anyone know what I need to do to make this change?

Hey @mitchell.ingstad Welcome to Netlify Community!

I’m confused here… you mention Netlify CMS, are you trying to change the email of an Identity user in your CMS or the Netlify Site owners email?

I am trying to change the email of a user.

I am the sole admin user in my site’s CMS. I currently have to login with my gmail. I am trying to delete that gmail account so I would like to change the admin account to a new email.

Does that help?

Yes, that clears things up a little bit.

So you’re trying to change the details of an identity user (all be it your one).

This should work:

  1. Go to app.netlify.com/sites/[YOUR-SITE]/identity

  2. Click on the user you wish to edit

  3. Click edit settings (see below)

  4. Edit the email to the one you want to change it to.

Hopefully this helps :slightly_smiling_face:
