vRSLCM 8.x change admin@local password via API

I recently had an use case where i wanted to change the admin@local LCM password via an API call in order to automate the password rotation.

If you need a guide to get started you can find my other blog here

To change the password we can use postman PUT call to https://$vRLCM/lcm/authzn/api/v2/users/password

Don`t forget to include the new password under the body field formatted in JSON format ex:

We can also leverage curl using:

curl -k --location --request PUT 'https://$vRSLCM/lcm/authzn/api/v2/users/password' \
--header 'Accept: application/json' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--header 'Authorization: Basic Token' \
--data-raw '{
  "password": "new_password",
  "username": "admin@local"

Don`t forget to replace the token with a properly encoded base64 token. Instructions are found on my other blog here
