I'm trying to use migrate_d2d, via the UI, to migrate a site from D6 to D7. I need to preserve user UID's in the migration. I'm finding the documentation confusing..

Given this in the UI...

What do I need to do to import the users?

  • Can you clarify? Sounds like you managed to import the users but they have different user id's compare to D6, is this correct? – No Sssweat Jul 15 '18 at 9:53
  • The import works but the UIDs are not the same. I don’t know what the setting in the UI should be to make this happen. – Eric Aitala Jul 15 '18 at 17:32

Here is the solution (see image)

  1. Uncheck DNM in 'Option:...' row
  2. Enter 1 as default value
  3. Save
  4. Edit again
  5. A new row will appear for 'Existing user ID'
  6. Select Source field, i.e uid.
  7. Save

This works...
