Implementing Account Linking Using post-login Actions

Problem Statement

Can we implement account linking using post-login actions

Solution

At the moment, account linking is one of the limitations of the actions (Actions Limitations). Currently, there is no ETA for it yet.

We suggest you move as much as you could from Rules to Actions because Actions are the future from a maintenance/enhancements standpoint.
However, there are cases that actions don’t cover yet. Please check this doc about limitations of Actions.

There are two different ways of implementing account linking:

  • User-initiated account linking: allow users to link their accounts using an admin screen in your app.
  • Suggested account linking: identify accounts with the same email address and prompt the user in your app to link them.
