How to manually generate the Password to insert in the user table
Created 6 years ago by srinivas214

Hi, If i manually insert the user record in the users_users table, I would need to encrypt the password and insert, Is there a way to generate the password manually using any of the Pyrocms functions. Please help me to get this. Thanks

Just use bcrypt('password here')

Use the UserRepository or the UserModel and you won't have to hash yourself:

UserModel::create($data); // For example

Same with manually updating the value:

$user->password = "Top Secret";
