Deployment – Live users not found in Stage and Dev

Acquia works on a system with three environments. When working in such a system, code is moved up from dev -> stage -> prod while databases from prod -> stage -> dev are moved down.

You should always consider content on dev and stage as nodes, users, taxonomies, etc. to be temporary. This is because you are migrating content by migrating the entire database from prod -> stage / dev or sometimes stage -> dev.

To involve your user in all environments, you must create the user on prod and then migrate that database to stage and dev. In these environments, you can then log in with your user.
