I need to get the password of a user using the RESTful api. I use this in an external webapp in order to have the same users in both places. The objective is to access some dashboards and use some session variables. The problem is that the webapp admin can modify a username (here I think the only option is to delete the old user and create a new one, but I need to keep the pentaho password). Another situation is that if you are deleting a user from both sides and something fails after delete it from pentaho, this should be created again with the same password.

So, it is possible to get the password?
