In Phacility, inviting an email address that belongs to a bot/mailing list account hits new "import" language in a confusing way
Open, LowPublic


Via email. Likely reproduction instructions:

  • Create a bot account on your instance.
  • Invite via the manager-facing "Invite Members" tool.

Actual behavior:

  • Get an error about "contact staff to import", since the email is already associated with an account.
  • This is correct-ish, but not very specific/helpful.

Desired behavior:

  • Get an error about "you probably accidentally created this user as a bot, contact staff to delete the account".

See also T9304 and T9303 for root cause issues (it's currently very easy to ignore the warnings and create bot accounts when you don't mean to).
