I'm migrating a site over but couldn't find anywhere in the forum etc. that stated what encryption type is required for database import. I figured I'd just set the password field to an initial generic value and have the customers update it. I entered the password field in a plain text but once imported, the generic field doesn't work.
If the import simply plops this field in as is without encrypting it in the process, I need to process it prior to import. Can anyone tell me if it's MD5/SHA1/other to save me some reimporting time? Or tell me how the import is supposed to work with passwords?
I'm using a follow-up reply rather than delete in case this helps someone else.
The password field migrates over as text and gets encrypted (I assume) when loaded into the BC database.
I misunderstood the id field and thought that the email would be used as the username if the username was blank. You still need to add the username but the unique identifier used for the id field is the email if you leave the id field blank (doesn't relate to the username).
I tested migration insert by adding the password as '12345' and was able to login with the provisioned username - for what it's worth.
