How to generate password hash

L4 Transporter

I am working on automation for managing multiple password changes in Panorama and  in the API calls only work with password hashes, rather than the plain text password. 


Have you any idea what is the process for creating(and reading) the password hash. I presume it uses the Panorama master key. 


I am aware that there is a CLI command for generating a hash (> request password-hash password) but it will not be very efficient when changing a few hundred usernames and it will be better to have the password generation handled within the automation script.
