<h3>Auto-migrate Persona users</h3>
<p>Mozilla is <a href="https://wiki.mozilla.org/Identity/Persona_Shutdown_Guidelines_for_Reliers">discontinuing the Persona authentication service</a> as of 30 November, 2016.
If your site is using Persona, you will need to migrate those users to a different authentication method. This plugin provides a basic option to change all Persona-based user
accounts on your site, to the Mahara "internal" authentication method.</p>
<p>Selecting "Yes" and saving this form, will activate the migration script, and do the following:</p>
<ol>
<li>All Persona auth instances on the site will be deleted.</li>
<li>All users who are on Persona authentication, will be switched to the Internal auth instance for their institution.</li>
<li>If their institution has no Internal auth instance, one will be created.</li>
<li>These users will <b>not</b> have a password set. They will need to use the "Forgot password" link (and their Persona email address) to set an initial Mahara password.</li>
<li>The users' usernames will be unchanged.</li>
</ol>
<p><b>Note:</b> Users will not receive any notification that their authentication method has changed. You may wish to put a message on your site's logged-out homepage to explain
to former Persona users that they should use the "Forgot password" link, and their Persona email address, to set a new password and access their Mahara account.</p>
