Problems with discussion signup (new users without a fedora project ID)

IMPORTANT: To avoid any saved logins, cookies, cache, etc use Chrome Incognito Mode for this procedure. We’re trying to simulate the new user experience.

  1. Navigate to https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/fedora-coreos/faq/
  2. Click the “discussion board” link https://discussion.fedoraproject.org/c/server/coreos
  3. Click the “Sign Up” button. After a few seconds you should see a “Sign In” box for https://id.fedoraproject.org

New users will be lost at this point. Browsing to https://id.fedoraproject.org doesn’t provide any clues.

Question. What is the correct (best) URL to request a fedora project ID?

So here is what I see. Once I click on the “Sign Up” button I get directed to a unique URL for signing in:

Which looks like this:

There is a “Sign up now” link at the bottom that points to: https://admin.fedoraproject.org/accounts/user/new

I think this process could be improved if the “Sign Up” button from discussion.fedoraproject.org pointed directly to https://admin.fedoraproject.org/accounts/user/new

@an101 - what do you think?

I get two additional screens before the redirect to the FAS LOGIN page:

– image removed –

(press cancel)

– image removed –

(press continue)

and then I reach the FAS login page.

After signing up, I received an email with my credentials. I went directly to the discussion group (without changing password) and attempted using both log in and sign up buttons. In both cases after entering my new credentials I received a confirm resubmit message and then was re-directed to the credentials prompt.

I then went back to my credentials email and logged in to https://admin.fedoraproject.org/accounts/user/changepass and changed my password.

I then returned to the discussion forum and tested both Log In and Sign Up buttons with the same results as before (a login form, then a resubmit form, then a login form …)

After a few minutes I tried Log In again and was presented with a new form:

– image removed –

After entering my credentials I was able to authenticate to the discussion forums.

Finally, when posting this message I had to remove all of the images because of this message

I’m removing all of the other images and will post them individually.

And apparently I’m replying too quickly:

Wow - another version of the replying too quickly message.

Here’s the re-submission message:

And finally the message I received after waiting for a while and pressing Log In (after this point I was able to access the discussion forum).

Sorry for all of the message spam - just trying to report this issue and move on with my life :slight_smile:
