Migrate existing permissions from local to LDAP (AD)

Hi together,


we have set up a local user directory in Confluence years ago; now we have attached our Active Directory and want to migrate the access including history, comments, locks etc. from the old user to the LDAP user.

Example: localuser "mlüer" should now access with "michael.lueer" (authentificated from the AD) to Confluence regarding his old permissions und the history etc. Common entity is the mail address "michael.lueer@computerkomplett.de"


Any ideas?


Best regards
