EBS: ‘This username already exists’ When Creating an Account in the Everbridge Member Portal

Problem:

When creating an account in the Everbridge Member Portal, the following error occurs:

This username already exists. Enter a new one or reset your password here.

Root Cause:

This error means another user or contact has already registered with this username. Usernames have to be unique across both the manager and member portals. Therefore if a username is being used by a contact, then a user cannot register with that username, and vice versa. See related Knowledge Base Article 000055451 - 'Username Already Exists’ When Registering an Account in the Everbridge Suite Manager Portal.

NOTES:

  • If a user record is deleted, the username may not be reused.
  • If a contact record is deleted, the username may be reused after 30 days at which time the contact record is removed from the Deleted Contacts tab under Manager Portal > Organization > Contacts > Deleted Contacts.

Solution:

Continue with the account creation by entering a unique username.
