Urgent: How safe to export /import users and roles?

We have many roles and user IDs defined in EP DEV system.

We want to export the roles and users from EP DEV.

Then we want to

1) import the exported roles into EP QAS

2) import the exported users into EP QAS.

Do you see any problem with above steps?

Is this procedure safe?

I'll give points! Thanks!

    Hi Laura,

    Importing/Exporting of Users and Roles have no threats because the password will not be attached with the exporting data.

    Hope it helps!

    Thanks,

    Vijay

    I am sending you 2 different process for <b>export /import users and roles</b>

    <i><b>export /import users </b></i>

    1. Go to User Administration

    2. Click on User Data Export

    3. Select user(s) whom you want to export. It will give you user information

    e.g.

    [User]

    uid=subhrajyotik

    role=

    group=Everyone;EPDevelopers;SubhroGroup;Authenticated Users;

    email_address=subhrajyoti.kar@hcl.in

    first_name=Subhrajyoti

    last_name=Kar

    country=IN

    language=en

    time_zone=Asia/Calcutta

    4. Copy this and save it in a file

    5. Go to new server.

    6. Go to User Administrator -> User Data Import

    7. Upload user data file (which you have saved earlier from old server)

    8. Your user(s) will migrated.
