I am trying to migrate user accounts from a Drupal 7 site to a Drupal 8 site.

On the Drupal 8 site, I have a module that programmatically adds users using the following code.

$user = User::create();
$user->uid = '';
$user->set("pass", $S$E96L22SibwKw5GrZrrCqCz7mxSjr9Z2pSB3GqBs5eeheTBPxOlJc); /*hashed value*/

The module creates the accounts correctly, but the user passwords are re-hashed.

  • Don't hash the password in this line: $user->set("pass", $S$E96L22SibwKw5GrZrrCqCz7mxSjr9Z2pSB3GqBs5eeheTBPxOlJc);. Use an unhashed value.

  • @Jaypan you are the right man. But I have 1000 user from my another drupal site. So that, I want to save hashed password. Sep 30 '19 at 11:42
  • @Jaypan I know when a user saves with a password. drupal automatically convert plaintext to hashed Sep 30 '19 at 11:44
  • It won't work - Drupal adds a hash salt to hashes, so unless you included that salt when creating your hashes, it wouldn't work. And since you are migrating your users from a different system, they won't have that salt. For this situation you can force your users to recover their password on the new system after migration, by sending out the password reset mail.
