We have a load of users in our old custom DB who have not yet set a password, so I would like to bulk-import them into Auth0 rather than waiting for the automatic migration to take place (which we have working nicely).
However, when I try to create those users through the API, Auth0 checks the custom DB, sees they are already there, and stops the creation - understandably. I’m using the wp-auth0 plugin, so I don’t have a lot of control over the other end of the custom DB scripts, otherwise I could of course change things at that end.
What I’m wondering is, when are the different scripts used? The
login script is used for logging in, obviously, but how about
get-user? Is that only used to look up if a user already exists?
If so, I could temporarily disable that script to remove the disambiguation check while I run the import. Does that make sense? Are there dangers in that approach?
