Dear all,

I'm wondering if any of you already has an experience with this kind of operation:

Currently I have around 40% of my users which belong to a newly acquired company, where the Active Directory infrastructure is not  merged with ours yet.

To create them without waiting I had to create a specific password: User(password) type.

As the AD is progressively merged I want to switch them to a User(Windows/LDAP/SAML) type, in order to avoid managing passwords (create, reset...).

Currently I have to delete the user and recreate it with the same profile, so my questions are:

- how does it impact the user preferences ? Are they reset ?

- does it impact the user's favorites ?

- most importantly, does it impact their saved "Presentations" ?


If there is an impact do you know of any workarounds ?


Thanks for your input.
