[resolved] Activation limitation for Jetpack Monitor (4 posts)

    The Monitor option of Jetpack apparently requires activation by the local WordPress user account that authorized the wordpress.com connection. This seems like an unnecessary restriction (perhaps I'm missing something, though). What if the account that originally authorized the wordpress.com connection is deleted? Why lock out the WordPress install user (id=1)? Why not allow changes by any admin level user?

    Why lock out the WordPress install user (id=1)? Why not allow changes by any admin level user?

    At the moment, we can only send Monitor emails to one person. That's going to change soon, but until then we wanted to make sure that person was the main admin on the site.

    Rest assured though, we're continuously working on improving the Monitor module.

    What if the account that originally authorized the wordpress.com connection is deleted?

    In this case, we display a notice, and you'll need to reconnect with the new user.

    I hope this clarifies things a bit.

    OK, that makes some sense. However, why not just use the email address set in "Settings|General"? Or just allow separate entry of an email address for monitoring notifications? Not sure I see why this has to be in any way connected with the account that first authorized the wordpress.com connection (perhaps this is a technical limitation in the code)...

    That's the email address we know about. We don't know about the email address set in Settings > General, unfortunately.

    But all of this will become better soon, no worries! :)
