To migrate an existing user to the new Email Based Authentication protocol, find the user in the list located under the Users tab in Fleet Settings as displayed in the Users Dialog section within the first EBA tutorial. Then:
Notice that the user status is still showing Pending.
Once the migration is complete the users status will change to Migrated.
Users already linked to Email Based Authentication will get a pop-up message indicating confirmation of the migration. Users not previously linked to Email Based Authentication will receive an email request to reset the password. If you are new to EBA, follow the steps explained for Password Reset in the second EBA tutorial.
It is recommend that admin users migrate other users in order to save time and improve effectiveness.
As a Email Based Authentication user, the only way to change the email is to revert the migration first. If you need to do so:
If successful, a confirmation pop-up message will indicate that “the migration was reverted“. This will allow changes of email address in the user’s account.
