If you have multiple MetaLink accounts or multiple email addresses there will a couple of additional screens.
Note: this username change will only affect MetaLink and will not impact any other Oracle site or login that you may have.
In addition, and this is a big change, users who do not have an active CSI number in their profile will find that their MetaLink access is limited to only viewing their profile. Oracle are doing this to ensure that only those people who genuinely have a valid support identifier gain access to all of the benefits of MetaLink. For further information on this subject, please log in to MetaLink and take a look at note 3661177.1, released on 15 March 2006.
To check whether you have a valid profile, use this workflow:
- Log in to MetaLink
- Click the Profile link ( top-right of screen)
- On the Profile menu, click Licenses
- Click the Show button alongside a profile
- Look at the Expiry Date
If you don't see an Expiry Date in the future for any of your profiles then you don't have a valid CSI number. You have about a month to get this rectified otherwise you will no longer have access to the forums, patch releases and other useful information on MetaLink. I urge you to check your profile and make sure you are valid.
