Re: Brocade Community Username Notice

Hello Jason,

I have not found any way to send a PM in Brocade's Community portal - hence this message/reply.
My name is Dan Johansson and not "Antonio Bongiorno TechHelp24"!!!
When I log into "MyBrocade" the system correctly identifies me as "Dan Johansson" and all info under "My Profile" are correct (E-mail, Name, Company and so on), but when I go to the Community I suddenly "becomes" "Antonio Bongiorno TechHelp24" (who seems to be an user who has been i the community some time). Looking at "My Settings" in the Community I see the information for Antonio.
I also get E-mails to my email-address which are addressed to Antonio (the emails starts with "Hi Antonio Bongiorno TechHelp24,").

Can you help me (us) setting things strait?

Kind Regards
Dan Johansson
