#4524 [RFE] Views: Automated migration tool from winsync
Closed: Fixed None Opened 9 years ago by tbabej.

One of the major use cases for ID Views is migration from sync solution (winsync based), where users get UIDs and GIDs assigned by FreeIPA - see #3318.

In the migration procedure, admin needs to create a idoverride for each such group and user in the default view, and then delete the original synced user/group entry.

There should be a command or a a separate tool to convert the synced users to idoverride objects in the default view.

This is bigger effort for which there was not enough time in 4.1, so I am moving it to later release.

Unlink from downstream bug as ticket was postponed.

Tomas found extra time to work on this feature, bumping priority.
