Moving User Lists...
So, I have about 8000 users in QC 9.0 on server x
I have a brand new implementation of QC 9.2 on server y
How do I add all the users?
(I see an export function, but no import function
AND, the export does not preserve passwords
ps, moving data from server x to y is not a trivial issue...
would like to be able to move a file....
If anyone's solved this programmaticly, I'd love to see the method used
Re: Moving User Lists...
You could use the Site Admin API to read all the user account information from one server and put it in the other. The trick is the passwords. I believe the API will not expose the passwords. In fact, I think passwords are stored with one-way encryption. The closest way around that would be to use SQL to extract the encrypted password data from the old database and then store the same encrypted password in the new database.
If it ends up being too much trouble to copy the passwords, you could use the API to generate a random password for each user that is copied to the new server, and then distribute that password to the corresponding user.
