I am posting this question with an account that is not mine. How did I get signed in as this person?
I am currently signed in on
developer.ebay.com as my correct developer account. When I click on Community > API Forums and then click Login on the resulting screen, I am automatically logged in as a user named negus11 with access to his email address, forum details, 'about me', etc. I seem to be unable to log in as myself. My own account is dtakahas. This seems like a serious breach to me and I would be horrified to see someone else posting as me, changing my details. Please respond.
Your eBay Developer account won't log you in here on the forums. Your regular eBay buyer/seller account will. So if you're logged in here as "negus11", then you're logged in to all of eBay as that person. Check your My eBay, other eBay forums, other eBay areas, etc., and you should see this is the case. This doesn't seem to be a Developer issue. Maybe you let someone use your computer before you and they used eBay? Family member with a secret buying account? Or are you on a shared/public computer where some previous person forgot to log out?
No, there's definitely something fishy here. Looks like the repro isn't exactly what I thought. I think it may have to do with logging into
sandbox.ebay.com as my test user and then clicking Forums Sign in here. I am automatically logged into the forums as this negus11 user. I was able to do it after wiping my browser cache and shutting down my browser. I'll see if I can post exact steps.
@helios825 Okay exact repro: 1. I sign into
sandbox.ebay.com with my test user account 2. In a separate browser tab, I open
forums.developer.ebay.com 3. I click Forums Sign in 4. I am automatically logged into the forums as this account (which is not mine)
So you're saying you created new Sandbox users, using the Trading API, right? And the user you created is NOT the various users that you have been accidentally logging into this forum and posting as? These other users that you are posting as -- when you go into My eBay on the main eBay website, and you look at account setup details (name, address, email address, etc.), do they look like real user info?
