There are no direct operations set on the Portal page that allow a user to import the exported User Entities JSON file to Custom Entities. But, we can achieve it by writing a Cloud Code script (setting to S2S callable for calling from custom server). Here is the code script that will do this trick for you.

var response = {};
var createdTypes = 0;
var createdEntities = 0;

var profileId = bridge.getProfileId();
var email = bridge.getEmail();
bridge.logInfo("running from ConvertUserEntitiesToCustomEntities script profileid: ", profileId);


var session = bridge.getSessionForProfile(profileId);
bridge.logInfo("running from ConvertUserEntitiesToCustomEntities script session: ", session);


//use pagination to determin if need to get next page
var maxperpage = 100;
var pageNumber = 1;

var context = {
    "pagination": {
        "rowsPerPage": maxperpage,
        "pageNumber": pageNumber
    },
    "searchCriteria": {
       
    },
    "sortCriteria": {
        "createdAt": 1,
        "updatedAt": -1
    }
};

var entityProxy = bridge.getEntityServiceProxy(session);

var firstPageResult = entityProxy.getPage(context);

if (firstPageResult.status == 200) {
   
    var count = firstPageResult.data.results.count;
   
    response.count = count;

    if(count>0){
       
        var customEntityProxy = bridge.getCustomEntityServiceProxy();
       
        var items = firstPageResult.data.results.items;
       
        //get exist custome entitties types
        var collectionsResult = customEntityProxy.sysListCollections();
       
        //create an array to hold current types/collections names (type name is unique required in custom entities)
        var arrTypes = [];
        var existCustomEntityTypes;
       
        if (collectionsResult.status == 200) {
           
            existCustomEntityTypes = collectionsResult.data.collections;

Note: to convert all users' User Entities to Custom Entities accordingly, go ahead to call RunBatchUserScript() from S2S Explore.
