We have a requirement to import existing users (about 100,000) from another application into Salesforce as Community Users. Existing users have a email address as their username and a password that is currently stored in LDAP which I can extract.
I think there are 3 options to do this:
- Use data loader to load them as users. But this will not allow me to load passwords. I think a second step is required to load up password separately.
- I've seen somewhere that we may use Salesforce API to do mass user provisioning including uploading the password.
As a newbie to Salesforce I have not done #2/#3 before. I basically need to load up the users including their password into the Community. I would like to know if anybody have any examples with option #2/#3 or any other suggestions is greatly appreciated.
