Linking MSDN account to Learn profile for Q&A

RLWA32 36,961 Reputation points

I followed the instructions at and am unsure how to proceed. I can sign in to the MSDN forums using the same credentials that I use for signing in to Q&A. If I am already signed in to Q&A the MSDN sign in process notes that I already have a signed in account I can select it to complete the MSDN sign in. Upon doing so the process completes and my old MSDN profile is loaded.

So I am a bit confused by the Q&A instructions about adding another account to link MSDN to Q&A. There is no other account as far as I can tell.

Should I provide the credentials for my currently signed in Q&A account in response to the Add Account prompts?

If not, what steps should be taken?

    Microsoft Certification / Exams is currently not supported in the Q&A forums.
