GItlab LDAP auth migration to new server with modified account ids

Hello Folks,

We are using Gitlab version 7.1.1 in our production environment with user authentication via Active Directory/LDAP.

Now we are at a point to migrate to new and bigger organizational AD where some users have different usernames/login users.

E.g. User is Foo has “foo.bar” as current login id and on new AD that would be “fbar”.

I am suspecting that after migration to new AD, users with modified user ids will no longer have proper group/project accesses in place and will have to grant them proper access again.

I am not sure if that is going to be smooth given large number of users with modified user ids.

Appreciate if some GIT gurus can help me make this transition smoother.

I have the exact same problem. Found any solution?
