Import Livecycle Users


Former Community Member
Hi all

Suppose I have installed Livecycle 8 Update 1 on two physically different servers. Now I want to import users from one server to other server. How would I do that?

Thanks in advance.

Assuming that you are dealing with local users, it can be done through API. You cannot just copy records from one database to another. You have to do it through the LC API. Areas you need to explore:

- AuthorizationManager and DirectoryManager under:


- Since you need to recreate the passwords for each of the local users then you need get this info from edcprincipallocalaccountentity from the database. So you need to get familiar with all the tables that start with edcprincipal...

For LDAP users you just need to create a new domain connect and point to the LDAP server.
