Getting Data In

Is there an API call or CLI argument to update the password for the bind user for LDAP authentication?

Explorer

I have a very large, complex Splunk environment and I need to update the LDAP BIND user password. With over 100 instances I need to update it with a script but cannot find either a cli option or an API that sets that password.

(see the example in POST section after expanding it.
