How to Set User Passwords For Users Created From API

Quentin RIBAUD: Hello! I want to create users through the API, but there is no way to specify the password in the payload. Thus, whenever I create a user, it is successfully added to the organization page, but I can’t login with it since I can’t specify a password. Do you have any recommendation? Here is the code i’m using to create the user, if you need any other information, feel free to ask :

def create_user(email, password):
url = f"{api_endpoint}/users/"
data = {
"email": email,
# "password": password, there is no password clause to specify the password that I can use to connect to the organization page
"username": email
}
response = <http://requests.post|requests.post>(url, headers=headers, json=data)

`if response.status_code == 201:`
    `print(f"User '{email}' created successfully.")`
`elif response.status_code == 400:`
    `print(f"{email} already has an account")`
`else:`
    `print(f"Failed to create user '{email}'. Error: {response.text}")`

Chris Hoge (HumanSignal): Label Studio doesn’t allow setting the password through the API. If you have access to the system hosting Label Studio, you can reset the password on the command line using: label-studio reset_password --username &lt;username&gt; --password &lt;password&gt;

Chris Hoge (HumanSignal): Because Label Studio open source allows any user to use their token to access the API, the app only allows password resets from the command line for security reasons.

Quentin RIBAUD: Hi! that makes sense since any user can use their token to access and use the API, you cannot change the passwords that way, that’s what I was thinking, but thank you for the details!
