    I'm looking to export the list of users from a Sitefinity DB running 3.7 to one running 8.2   I'm more interested in preserving the username, email, first and last name, and password.  

    Is it possible to do via SQL Server?

    Hi Troy,

    What I did was:

    • Wrote some functions to export Users and Roles through the API
    • Inside these functions I used some plain old ADO.NET statements to get the password and salt per user out of the tables

    This was exported to .csv, which worked for me.

    Best regards,
    Daniel
