    Hi,

    how is it possible to change an existing wordpress user to an wpdirauth user?

    Is there a specific meta field at the database? Will you provide a convert button?

    Regards,

    how is it possible to change an existing wordpress user to an wpdirauth user? Is there a specific meta field at the database?

    Yes, there’s a meta key + value pair that determines whether the user should be authenticated via directory-authentication: wpDirAuthFlag, with a value of 1. So for each user that needs to be converted, you would just need to add that meta_key and value. After that wpDirAuth will start authenticating via directory authentication.

    Will you provide a convert button?

    Maybe? The challenge is multisite. Since there’s only one collection of users in a multisite set-up, shared across all the sites, it would have to be handled differently than single site setups.
