Any updates about this feature? We are looking for exactly this right now to import our users from existing CMS 5.2 R2 to another website with same version of CMS.
Please help if there is any other alternative available.
Rashmi: If it's EPi 5 or later version the user store is not EPiServer's responsibility. If you are using the regular SQL Membership Provider you can just migrate users using tools for SQL Server.
Johan: Would you explain further on how to migrate users using tools for SQL? users from CMS 6 --> CMS 7
Just export data from the tables named aspnet_* (not all are needed but shouldn't be a problem to copy all) using SQL Server Management Studio. Put the same applicationName for the providers in web.config and make sure the servers have the same machineKey so that passwords are encrypted in the same way.
Ok, thanks, does this apply also if we are using SqlServerMembershipProvider ?
Yes, SqlServerMembershipProvider is a Microsoft component and when activated it's used in the exact same manner by EPi 5, 6 & 7.
Yup, standard .NET user database so np there...nothing EPiServry about that part just like Johan says...
