Export/import users in Realm app
Option to export all Realm app users and import them.
It's a major concern that users can't be exported. Both for backup reasons and also for moving them between apps.
If you delete or loose a Realm app you are out of business because the users are gone and if you mistakenly chose the wrong deployment region, you can't move the app because you can't move the users.
I think this is absolutely critical to growing a business using Realm apps.
The issue for me is that when I use the same ID in the custom function login the userID differs between Realm apps. I need the ability to dictate the concrete user ID as this is what is used on a partition key. I don't actually need those users' data to be shared for example as I can migrate it on my side if needed.
The real issue is that user management is hidden from us. We need to have access to the mongo atlas / collection handling user authentications.
Hoping to see improvements on this aspect of Realm Sync.

I share your concern and am considering using a 3rd party service for authentication using JWT, which explicitly allows for complete user data export and import (such as Auth0 for example). I am not sure, if it will solve all the concerns and would prefer a Realm solution.
What do you think about this proposal for a solution?
