I have a self-hosted OpenID provider which I use to log into the StackExchange sites. I'd like to add a StackExchange login to my StackExchange account, however, the "add more logins.." link just switches me between accounts.
Steps, running in private browsing to prevent any cookie issues:
- I created a StackExchange login using my email address (email@example.com).
- I logged into StackExchange using my self-hosted OpenID account, which authenticates me as nicholas-sideras.
- I followed the "add more logins..." link to this page.
- I click the button to login with StackExchange, and provide my email address and password.
I am taken to a page that says
You are currently logged in.
Do you want to log out and log in with this OpenID?
Stack Exchange (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I click the login button, and am switched to the new account that was created with the email@example.com StackExchange OpenID credentials.
So then I try to "add more logins..." and authenticate to my self-hosted OpenID provider, where I am then switched back to my original StackExchange account. "add more logins..." just keeps switching me back and forth between accounts.
(Hopefully this is clear. I'm working with self-hosted OpenID credentials, StackExchange OpenID credentials, this StackExchange account that posted this question, and a StackExchange account that was created when I created the StackExchange OpenID credentials.)
I expected step 4 to add firstname.lastname@example.org with StackExchange OpenID as a login with my current account. Am I misunderstanding the process?
