I completed migration from Magento to Magento 2.1.6. I'm just migrating the sample data of magento (I don't create any customer by myself). I'm testing their functionality.

We have seen customer data in Magento

Admin->Customer->Manage Customer

I need to know the one customer username and password to login in magento 2.1.6 for checking customer data correctly migrated.

After migration I found in customer_entity table

email : jack@example.com
password_hash : 4fe96cf8b888c1f20e1726450896940a2cea453128c51fa07539536a4205e12b:t6:1

how to decrypt password_hash


You can compare both database password


customer_entity >> password_hash (magento 2)


customer_entity_varchar >> value (Magento 1)

if both your customer's value matched then your migration is successfully done.

  • m2 -> 4fe96cf8b888c1f20e1726450896940a2cea453128c51fa07539536a4205e12b:t6:1, m1 -> 4fe96cf8b888c1f20e1726450896940a2cea453128c51fa07539536a4205e12b:t6 – Bilal Usean May 19 '17 at 13:21
  • :1 append extra in m2 compared to m1, it worked(I have tested like again start migration from the scratch after adding new customer in m1), the same password successfully login in m2 after migration. – Bilal Usean May 19 '17 at 13:22
  • M2 n M1 both using different algorithm to save password – Ronak Chauhan May 19 '17 at 13:39
  • yup you right! M1 (md5:salt), M2(sha256(salt+pwd):salt:encryption method), I'm wonder how M2 similar to M1 except encryption method – Bilal Usean May 19 '17 at 13:47
  • If my solution help you to resolve your issue then you can mark it so it can help others too – Ronak Chauhan May 19 '17 at 13:53

For me this worked out:

You can reset password in admin panel.

  • Step1: Navigate to Customers->Manage customers.
  • Step2: Select Customer.
  • Step3: Select Account Information Tab. Then select Password Management Tab.

Here you can reset password for the customer.
