Importing users to JIRA via JSON

I'm trying to use JSON to import Users, I'm doing OK but cannot get the password to work

"users": [
"name": "alice",
"fullname": "Alice Foo"
, "email": "", "password": "password" }

Which works fine (I'm using the system, external system import, import from json beta), but I log out and try to login as alice and it doesn't let me login, I tried putting "confirm" : "password" in too but it didn't like the field, help please?

Setting up passwords using JSON importer is not supported. Currently none of the importers imports passwords.

You need to use a different mechanism for setting the password, I think you can use JIRA command line tools for that, or just ask users to use password recovery from Log in page.

Thanks Pawel <damn> :-)
