Create user with password

I'm trying to sync user management between Nuxeo server and an application built with it. I've read the model documentation at and the endpoint documentation at The property for the user name is 'username' but what's the property to set for his/her password? I can try an educated guess but couldn't figure out this information from the documentation.

Thanks in advance for your help.

You just need to pass the “password” property inside “properties” object

    "entity-type": "user",
    "id": "",
    "properties": {
        "lastName": "Demo",
        "username": "demo",
        "email": "demo@localhost",
        "company": "",
        "firstName": "Demo",
        "password": "12345"

This part of the documentation is missing, but it should be planned to be reviewed. In the meantime, you can use the automation endpoint you'll find the password attribute.
