Use the Default Security Manager  for your trial tenant. Once you have purchased a license for your tenant, you can switch the Security Manager of your tenant and retain forms/flows, users, roles and submissions.

Tenants using the Default Security Manager can be migrated to:

  • Default Security Manager → LDAP
  • Default Security Manager → SAML  
  • Default Security Manager →  Azure SAML

Tenants using the LDAP Security Manager can migrate to:

  • LDAP → SAML
  • LDAP → Azure SAML

If you are planning to switch the Security Manager of your tenant to LDAP or SAML Security Managers in the future, make sure the users created in the default security manager tenant have the same user names as the users in your LDAP server or identity provider.

  2. Use csv upload feature to move your users/roles to the tenant.
  3. Download and upload the applications from designer user accounts in the trial database to the designer users in the new database.
