Transferring user accounts from ASP.NET to MojoPortal

Occasionally we need to transfer user accounts from existing ASP.NET membership based sites into MojoPortal

Note : if the databases are on the same server, or can be linked, then it is possible to take the SQL of the selects in the ExportASPNETUserData.bat file and use them to insert into the MojoPortal database tables. Using the .bat files will work wherever the databases are, as long as your PC can connect to both.
If you can't connect to both, run the XMLFormat and Export scripts on a machine that can connect to the ASP.NET membership database, then copy the files and run the Import script on a machine that can connect to the MojoPortal database

Note: It is possible to do the format/export/import in one script, but being able to sanity check the data before inserting is useful. You could also use staging tables to test the scripts before using the real MojoPortal tables

Note: The switches set in each file are those I found were best for the LHaR data. Change them if you feel it is appropriate for you data. See: BCP Utility Technical Reference

 

How-to

  • Set MojoPortal to use plain text passwords
  • Create a folder on your PC to contain the scripts
  • In this folder, create the following .bat files:
    • CreateMojoUserTablesXMLFormats.bat
    • ExportASPNETUserData.bat
    • ImportMojoPortalUserData.bat
  • In this folder create the following subdirectories:
    • data
    • formats
    • output
  • Create and run the CreateMojoUserTablesXMLFormats.bat file
  • Create and run the ExportASPNETUserData.bat file
    • Note: add as many user properties as required. To do this, select out each property in a separate select and then UNION the results together
    • Check the output directory for any errors
    • Check the data files have been created and contain the data you expect
  • Create and run the ImportMojoPortalUserData.bat
    • Check the output directory for any errors
    • Check the database tables have the data
  • Switch MojoPortal back to using encrypted passwords
  • Test a few logins
