@pitaj Also confirmed. I built a NodeBB instance for someone this morning and used the exact same process described here.
Unsolved User password export
After several years of using NodeBB my community has grown to the point where we need to migrate to a proprietary system (also due to company policy).
As part of the migration process i need to bring users (6000+) and their passwords into the new database.
I understand that passwords are stored as hashes in the nodebb mongodb database; is there a way of extracting them to the new database so that all my users don’t have to reset their passwords?
I’ve no interest in finding out my users passwords per se, i just want to make the transition as seamless as possible for them.
Your best option is to have them sign in to NodeBB then forward them to a password reset form on your new site.
Your only other option is to use the exact same hashing algorithm and copy the salt from your NodeBB.

@eesty sorry, but why not do a mongodb backup and restore it in the new system? Maybe I missing something?
@normando they're migrating away from NodeBB
Thanks for your replies everyone
@eesty what is the company policy?
It seems it would probably be cheaper to not migrate from NodeBB but have us host it for you as a vendor.
That is what happened to the FusionAuth forum
