Hi, I'm pretty new with mendix, and i have a very basic question (I think). Been searching the forum but cannot seem to get the right answer. So: - I'm building an hybrid app with anonymous access, so that new users can register for the app, and get full access to the app. - I need to import about 6.000 users. (which currently use a different not-mendix app) - I'll be usinig the mendix cloud. I have three questions: 1. What is the difference between local users and mendix AppCloud users? 2. Do I have to import these 6000 users as local users of the app? 3. When new users register, will these be registered as Local users? or as Mendix AppCloud users?

1) AppCloud users are users that are registred with Mendix. With your user base I would stick to local users which are only known by your app.
2) Depends on how you want to do the registration proces. I would simply import your current user base (Excel import it). But you could skip it and only create a user account for the people who want to register.
3) I would stick with the local users. So creating a new account is a local user.
