How to migrate existing AAD auth users to SAML auth?

Hi Team,

We are using SonarQube Enterprise Edition with Version 8.9.7 LTS and we are integrating SAML for user authentication with it. Currently, SonarQube is integrated with Microsoft AAD and around 300+ users are already registered and using it.

Is there any way to migrate users from the AAD auth type to the SAML auth type? As it is not allowing users to log in using SAML so, we need to manually deactivate that specific user and then only it allows them to log in.

Note: The configuration is done for SAMl integration but authentication is yet to enable as SonarQube is giving below error if users are trying to log in using SAML.
Reason: This account is already associated with another authentication method. Sign in using the current authentication method, or contact your administrator to transfer your account to a different authentication method.
