Can I create (or update) user password with WP-CLI by hash?

I want to make a user-create snippet, but it must not includes plain password.

   \$ wp user create username username@example.com --role=administrator --user_pass=password


So can I create (or update) user password by hashed value?

This should work:

wp user update USERNAME --user_pass=PASSWORD

• @cjbj The link was simply stating where I got the answer from... It has nothing to do with the actual answer – yobddigi Dec 5 '16 at 12:37
• Is it plain text password, isn't it? – Youichi Okada Dec 6 '16 at 2:02

I know this is an old question, but I found this while looking for a similar solution. Best solution (unless you alter the DB directly) seems to be the --prompt argument. You can pass the new password over stdin with

wp user update <USER> --prompt=user_pass


This avoids having the PW show up in your history/process list.
