    Thank you, and you know where I can find (inside xenforo files) an example of usage (during registration) ?
    I create a bridge Drupal 8 <=> Xenforo, and the password encryption on Drupal need to be the same as Xenforo for work without problem and with security.

    Are you developing an add-on?

    You have posted in the general feedback forum, not the developer support forum.

    Yes, I create an addon, but not Xenforo, Drupal.
    On my project : Drupal work with Xenforo, Xenforo don't work with Drupal (I use XenAPI). But I need to know how generate a password from Drupal for Xenforo.

    Sorry if I am to the wrong place, I don't know where place my message for need help.

    Could you please confirm if bcrypt is used even if you didn't started from scratch but from a migration of vBulletin 3?

    It has been in use since 1.2.

    It will be converted to bcrypt the next time they log in.

    Else you can use PasswordHash.php inside xenforo core for create an hashed password compatible with Xenforo.
