All Roles Not Transferred


I used the Export/Import Tool on a DNN website Release 7.3.4 operating on MS Azure. All of the users were imported along with the basic roles. However they were not imported with the custom roles. I used the option to use Role Names.

Finally fixed the issue by issuing a SQL Insert command to the database.

The problem is with the EXPORT of the roles in the CSV. the role IDs are separated by commas and thus when you use the import from the CSV the commas in the Roles columns cannot be distinguished from column separators.

Suggest using the "|" character for separation of RoleIDs and Role Names.

This issue does not exist withe XML Export/Import.
