Migrating from internal user directory to JIRA

We originally configured our Confluence instance to use the internal user directory (for testing). Now, we'd like to switch to using the user directory from our JIRA instance.

In the meantime, many users created Confluence accounts and started creating pages.

What's going to happen if I enable JIRA users and disable the internal directory? Is there a step that lets me migrate pages from the internal user to the JIRA user (for those with duplicate accounts)?

As long as they have the same username, nothing needs to be done for migrating. Add the JIRA user directory and add it on top of internal directory. If the same username exists in both directories, the one in the top directory will be taken.

And the user in the top directory will take over for the user in the bottom directory? I'm thinking about for user-private things like user spaces and profile settings.

Yes. That's right. Please test it in a Test environment to make sure everything works as expected.
