Local users to LDAP

Hello there!

We are planning to migrate from local users to ldap authentication and I need some guidance in how to make sure I “match” the users.

Current scenario:

LDAP scenario:

  • EE version
  • domain name = another.com (note ldap and local users domain are not the same)
  • ldap user email address field/attribute has the same email as first.last@domain.com.
  • users authenticate like this: flast / password

That said, is there a way that when the ldap user authenticates using his credential flast / password I can map to the first.last@domain.com and I do not lose any history, permission, etc?

I’m planning to disable the users local account and not to delete. Good and safe approach?

Thank you all!!!
