How to migrate Spotfire database user accounts to Windows AD LDAP accounts?


We are running Spotfire 7.8 on Windows Server 2012 in AWS.

We currently use database authentication of our Spotfire users. Their account user names happen to be their Windows AD user names.

We would like to migrate our authentication configuration from database to Windows AD LDAP. The authentication configuration changes themselves are fairly straightforward. However, what we end up with is two distinct sets of users, e.g.

jsmith: the original database user account, and

jsmith@DOMAIN.EXAMPLE.ORG: the new Windows AD LDAP user account

Is there a way to migrate our database user accounts to their Windows AD equivalents, such that things like Spotfire group memberships and folder and file permissions are preserved?

Would using the collapse-domains feature work?
