Migrate Qlik Sense users from local to AD account

When we launched our Qlik Sense Server 2.x we used local Windows users for authentication.  We just implemented Active Directoryand would like to move everyone to use their domain logins and remove the local accounts.

Is there a way to merge the local account with the new domain account, so all of their app objects are transferred as well instead of manually changing ownership for each object?  Or at least transfer the token from the local account to the domain account in QMC? 

As far as I can tell, I can only deallocate the token from the local account, wait for the token to free up after being quarantined (7 days?!?) then allocate that token to the user's domain account.  I'm looking for a way to transfer it or merge the accounts in the QMC so our Qlik users aren't dead in the water for 7 days.  Does Qlik have a way to help their customers migrate to AD?

Thank you!

I doubt there is any other way than waiting for licenses to get released.

You have to manually change this

You can reassign the tokens
