HCL Connections, external user to internal  

By Wannes Rams | 10/14/21 4:54 AM | Infrastructure - Connections | Added by Matteo Bisi

We all got the request before, a user has been created as an external user and needs to become internal, or an external consultant has been hired and needs to be changed. WARNING! I strongly advise not to change an internal user to an external one. This is a security risk as internal users have access to much content by default and the db2 commands I will provide do not guarantee all will be secured if you perform them in the opposite way. The recommended process here is to delete the user, remove all email address references in your database and recreate a user with a new identifier.
