Is there a way to link local accounts with the discourse-saml plugin?

We have just enabled saml login for our employees to log in to our forums. Is it possible to link their local accounts with the new saml login, or will we have to get them to make new accounts and merge them?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Lachlan!

As long as the user email addresses on both methods coincide, they will be pointed to the same user records.

If users want to use a different email address for local login, they could add it as a secondary email to the record created by SAML login.
