Set up user provisioning and SSO for the migration

We recommend that you set up user provisioning and single sign-on before migrating users, just to have your new environment ready for users. However, you can also choose to do it afterwards, the final result will be the same.

How user provisioning works with migrated users?

Whether you provision or migrate users first, we match any “incoming” users to the existing ones in cloud based on their email address. Any references, such as mentions or comments, are migrated with project or space data and also linked to the right users.
