Consolidate User accounts

This (optional) tool allows you to consolidate (or merge) multiple users' accounts into one by linking their previous user records with the new user.

  • Group memberships
  • Event / Exam enrollments
  • Course Session enrollments
  • Grades
  • Test attempts

If during consolidation it finds that the same membership exists for both old and new users, it would ignore the linking for that specific item. So, ideally, you should consolidate accounts whose user did not participate in the same course or exam.

An example of the tool's usage is as follows: Suppose you want to consolidate the jdoe1, jdoe2, and jdoe usernames and want to merge everything jdoe1 and jdoe2 did into jdoe :

  • Enter the user name jdoe in the first text field
  • Enter jdoe1,jdoe2 in the second field
  • If you'd like to deactivate jdoe1 and jdoe2 after the operation, check the Deactivate checkbox (this is optional, and can be done later as well from the Site Users page)
  • Click Submit.

To enable the User Consolidate Accounts option in the Users menu, add the following code to the Site Admin->Placements->V2 Footer JS.

<!-- UI customization begin -->

       $("#mnu_UPLOAD_USERS").after("<li><a href='../jsp/'>Consolidate Accounts</a></li>");
