Set up to test:

Important: See https://groups.drupal.org/node/398588 to get set up. This page also includes instructions for re-setting to a clean destination. Also note that any migrations that include the user migration as a dependency require that the D6 site has at least one other user in addition to user 1, since the superuser doesn't get migrated.

Ensure modules are enabled on the source and destination sites:
D6: drush en profile -y (if profiles should be migrated)
D8: N/A

Place the manifest file in the D8 site root

Download the attached .yml file, and place it in your Drupal 8 site root.

Run the migration

From the D8 site root:
drush migrate-manifest --db-url=mysql://user:pass@localhost/database D6Manifest-User.yml

If you've updated/installed drush 7.x after July 16, 2014, you'll want to use:

drush migrate-manifest --legacy-db-url=mysql://user:pass@source/source D6Manifest-User.yml

Compare post-migration settings

Main interface:
D6 config: /admin/user/profile
D8 config: admin/config/people/accounts/fields
Content for both: /admin/user/user

Success?

If your site migrates successfully, let us know with a comment on this issue. We'd love to hear details like:

  • the size and complexity of the site you migrated
  • performance observations
  • any customizations you made to the migration manifest!

Problems?

Open a new issue as a normal priority support request. Describe what happened, including the exact text of error messages. Depending on the nature of the problem, someone may ask for a sample of the data you're trying to migrate or follow up with other questions.

Remember, too, that this is pre-Beta. The focus is on D6 core > D8 core, not custom work or contributed modules, so there may be portions of your site that need special consideration that won't get addressed at this point in the process.

Hello, I just gave this a try and got the attached error.
Migration d6_aggregator_feed did not meet the requirements

EDIT: the error was between the computer and the chair. I was using the wrong manifest.yml file.

If you could please post your manifest file.

I was having an issue getting my profile values to migrate over, but I noticed that the MigrateProfileValuesTest is using d6_profile_values:user. I updated my test manifest to the same and profile values were migrated. I'm attaching a new test manifest for migrating users.

Thanks,
-mike

I tested field "Signature" by hand.

  • plaintext input -> Filtered html OK
  • html -> Filtered html OK
  • plaintext -> Full html OK
  • html -> full html OK
  • Special characters -> Filtered HTML OK
  • Special characters -> Full HTML OK
  • Field gets migrated when signatures are enabled on d6 and disabled on d8
  • Field gets migrated when signatures are disabled on d6 and enabled on d8
  • Field gets migrated when signatures are disabled on d6 and disabled on d8

Tested with 1 user and 500 users. Everything works as expected.

Tests failed on "selection" profile field type:

Running d6_user_profile_entity_display [ok]
Running d6_user_profile_entity_form_display [ok]
Running d6_profile_values:user [ok]

The reason it failed is because I had a profile field of type "selection" (aka. list) called profile_color. The selection options were:

"Red
Blue
Green
etc." < the dot is the problem.

Further, it was marked private. Not sure if that has an implication. Going to re-run the test with more fields...

EDIT: the problem is the dot in the "etc." item. -> #2302253: User profile "selection" type field type does not migrate from D6 if any of the available options contain a dot

Problem has been moved to #2302259: Test coverage for user profile "link" type from D6.

The "freeform" field fails when it has a blob of text rather than comma separated (or multi-line) values.

This failed specatacularly with a blob of text...

  • All the profile fields failed when this was included in a user's profile (other users OK).
  • Freeform field showed up as a single-line text field with multiple values.

Text input on user's profile was:

"Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Proin viverra enim sed eros consectetur pellentesque. Vivamus sed erat sit amet tellus consectetur vulputate. Vestibulum lobortis sodales enim eu lacinia. Fusce in rutrum turpis. Nulla hendrerit risus ut mauris placerat aliquam. Mauris interdum, orci non placerat blandit, quam risus imperdiet mauris, eu mattis enim felis a elit. Cras consectetur quam a odio venenatis, a gravida sem commodo. Sed turpis erat, ornare pellentesque lorem non, interdum laoreet nisi."

EDIT: this later worked when I used this input data:

"One, two, three
four"

However, items "two" and "three" showed up as " two" and " three" respectively (note the preceeding space).
