register new users via the database?

Postby carola » Thu Jul 24, 2014 3:48 am


if I want to register a new user - can I simply do it by inserting the data to users and user_user_groups in the database?

I did it that way and it works fine, still I fear inconsistancies or other problems later on. We have a lot of users that we need to add to the omp database so the GUI is no alternative for us.

Hi Carola,

Yes, working via the database is fine. FYI, we're working on the import/export tools and expect them to include user import/export for the OMP 1.2 release.
