I have a basic outline of how I would do this with FME Rest API, but wondering if anyone else has done it already in a comprehensive fashion, or whether Safe may have already created something for it? @siennaatsafe 

We are moving from Active Directory to Azure Active Directory (new name: Entra ID)  in FME Flow. I just need to be able to move all user content and roles to a new AAD (new name: ME-ID) user.

For instance:

group: FME from AD already exists, but I am going to import group: FME from AAD and then switch all the content and role capabilities for all the underlying users.


Happy to take anyone's learnings as well, just to ensure we don’t overlook anything?

Hi @todd_davis,


I asked the team last week and unfortunately we aren’t aware of anyone automating this process. It seems like you are on the right track with the REST API. Please let us know if you hit any snags!
