DO NOT connect your Independent Contractor S* id to Universal ID

If you’re an independent contractor like myself and has done certification with SAP under a S* user id, DO NOT connect your S* user id to Universal ID.

I just did this hoping that it would consolidate my accounts as I had created an email account sometime back. But now I just lost all my access to SAP Support Notes.  I have been using my S* id for more than 20 years and use it to blog and link it to certifications and use it to research notes as I go to different clients.

Universal ID admin is now saying my S* id was given under OTC Education Australia and will need a different id. I no longer have an independent access to SAP Support Notes.
