SID-02296: Can I change creation date of a user?

Status: Asked Asked TWiki version: 6.0.2 Perl version: 5.10
Category: CategoryRegistration Server OS: Scientific Linux 6.8 Last update: 1 year ago

I have successfully ported an old TWiki installation to a new one, but along the way decided to re-enter the user base via BulkRegistration. I thought that I could then modify TWikiUsers and put in the original date from the old TWiki. This, of course did not change the results in UserListByDateJoined. Ouch. Now I'm combing the metadata in the .txt files on the underlyng system, but fear that modifying those files outside the TWiki context is a really bad idea.

I'm just going put this out there, how can this be done? I want to manipulate the result of:

format="| $createdate

within a SEARCH function.
