      Description

      we have a use case where a company changes the usernames in Active Directory (LDAP)
      They need a way to change the usernames and also the document ownerships and permissions.

      It seems there is no one function or api hooks that will do an update alfresco repository in that way: update_repo(oldusername,newusername)

      The current way to do this is rather involved and would probably be to use javascript or java beans to traverse the repo and copy permissions from a given (old username,new username) map.
