Change user account associated with a Piaware Receiver


#1

Is there a way to change the user account that an existing Piaware is associated with?

I have a Keyboard and Monitor available if needed.

The receiver is b8:27:eb:0c:df:c6 (site 8735 ) the new account is mcairport. It’s currently under my account paulgrut.

apparently you can go to

flightaware.com/adsb/register

logging in with the new account and claim the reciever (not tried it, let us know if it works)


#3

I gave that a try. It doesn’t find a Piaware to claim. Evidently that doesn’t work if it has been claimed previously.

FA Support gave me the instruction. Perhaps they need to try it themselves.


#5

Could you do


sudo piaware-config -user (User Name) -password

Would that should change account holder, but I don’t know about the MAC moving to that account.


#6

Yea, tried this and it doesn’t work. I set up a pi for my buddy , but now need to get it moved from my account to his. Seems to be no way to do this online.


#7

I have the same problem. Hopefully we can get some feedback on how to get it transferred to the correct owner.


#8

Were you still looking to have the piaware changed to another account? If so, I just need the new account username and I can have the site switched.


#9

I also have this problem. I accidentally registered a new ADS-B receiver under my account and need to move it to my son’s account. HELP

First clear current feeder-id

$ sudo piaware-config -show feeder-id
xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx
$ sudo piaware-config feeder-id ""
Cleared setting for feeder-id in /etc/piaware.conf:9
$ sudo piaware-config -show feeder-id
$ sudo systemctl restart piaware

Now log-in to your son’s Flightaware account from same network where the Pi is, and cklick this link and complete claim process.

https://flightaware.com/adsb/piaware/claim

The Pi will now be registered with your son’s account with a new station number.

The thread was created a few years ago. The username login part will not work.
The feeder-id and abcd567 instructions are correct way to do this now.

If you don’t want to blank out the feeder-id you can also reclone the piaware image back on the SD card. This will create a new site on boot up which can then be claimed.

$ piaware-config flightaware-user

$ piaware-config flightaware-password

if your changs username or password could using that.
