From Gsuite to Office 365
We're planning a migration for a customer from Gsuite to Office 365. We've find out that this procedure works, but we're curious if it's the official way to achieve this and if it stays working even after eventually deleting the Gsuite user which was initially used to create the Insightly user.
Step 1. Let's create the user firstname.lastname@example.org in Gsuite admin console
Step 2. Add the user in Insightly by picking the user in the search "Google directory" box.
Step 3. Create a new Office 365 portal and authenticate the acme.com domain.
Step 4. Create a user in Office 365 email@example.com
Step 5. Go to Insightly login page and instead of using Login with Google account choose Login with Microsoft account.
Step 6. Login with the credentials you've just created for Office 365 user Bob
Voila! User Bob is successfully authenticated in Insightly even after removing the originating Gsuite user Bob.
Question. Is this a solid way of migrating from Gsuite to O365? It's working for now, but what if the user and complete Gsuite environment is finally removed? Is it still working after months?
