[Imported] Setting user password through ClearSCADA API

Can a user's password be set through the ClearSCADA API? I'm able to create a user, set all of their permissions, set the password rules, but I'm not able to find where to set their actual password. Is this possible through the API?

Is it simply a SetProperty() call on the user object? If so is the property just "Password" and what should the object for the password be (i.e. string or a SecureString)?

If anyone has any information I'd greatly appreciate it, thanks.

In the ClearSCADA .NET Client API, there is the method Connection.ChangeUserPassword(ObjectId objectId, SecureString oldPassword, SecureString newPassword).

Thank you so much! I'm not sure how I missed that. I didn't notice it was on the Connection class.
