[Crowd client] how to get list crowd user include password field value?

Hi guys,

 

I am using Crowd client java library. Now I need to import users from Crowd server to other application.

But when I get list of user by using searchUsers function, it return a list of user without password.

Is there any way to get list of user include password field?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi @tai nguyen

As far as I know, no you can't, at least with the usual API. If you actually try to retrieve the password hash with Crowd REST API with a simple GET on

http://localhost:8095/crowd/rest/usermanagement/1/user/password?username=test

You will get a 405 response code (Method not allowed). The password field is actually write-only here.

The only way I see to get the password hash of your users is to go to Crowd's console > General > Backup. This will export everything in Crowd's database including your users passwords hashes (if we're talking about an internal directory, you could obviously not get them for remote directories).

I got it.

Thank you so much for the answer.
