In the HCC Community Merge announcement, we shared exciting news that the Cloudera Community and Hortonworks Community Connection (HCC) will unite our content and members under one roof.
The purpose of this article is to show you how to activate your HCC account in the new Cloudera Community.
After the migration currently scheduled on August 4th, you will need to follow these key steps to activate your HCC account in the new community:
<firstname.lastname@example.org>that contains the activation link and click the “Activate My Account” button or copy and paste the activation link to your browser.
Here’s a quick introduction to what’s changing and what’s staying the same in the new community to help you make the most out of your account:
Be sure to log in or activate your account using the email account you registered with on Hortonworks Community Connection (HCC).
If upon account activation you notice you cannot use the username you had in HCC it’s because that username is already in use on the Cloudera Community. But no worries! You will have the option to set a new user name for yourself in the activation process. When you complete the activation you will be connected to your migrated profile and content.
Your content and profile will be migrated to the new community. If you followed content or other HCC members you will need to reset those options. In the new Cloudera Community expand your network by using the "Add as Friend" feature and "Subscribe" to content you want to follow. We will have help documentation available for these options.
HCC preferences will not migrate to the Cloudera Community. Take time to reset your preferences and explore new features. To reset your preferences click my Profile → My Settings → Subscriptions & Notifications. You’ll receive an immediate email notification for your content subscriptions by default. You can change the frequency to: never, daily, or weekly.

Existing HCC content and user profiles will move to the new community. Please verify that your messages, repos, and articles transferred over successfully, and be sure to reset your “followers” subscriptions as your existing list will not transfer.
The new Cloudera Community will include a modern layout with an easy to use interface. For full details and information on what’s changing check out the What’s Changing for Hortonworks Community Connection post.
