    Hi,

    Good day.

    Currently we are planning to migrate the user authentication from IBM Directory Server 6.4 to Microsoft Azure? The User name would remain same in both
    the authentication providers. For example if the user name is  "abc" by using the  previous authentication,  it remains same as "abc" in the new authentication provider which is azure.

    Could you please suggest on the below?

    1) Whether the newly configured Azure Name Space in Cognos will have all the  old users integrated dynamically who were able to access previously?

    2) How to migrate the schedules which ever are created  by the users previously when they are migrated to Azure Namespace? If this SDK code, could you please post me the SDK code for migration/mapping?

    3) Any step by step doc for migrating users from IBM Directory server 6.4 to Azure?


    Thanks and Regards
