Description (partial)

We can use the REST API to change internal user details and we can omit the password field in the UPDATE request.

This works fine to change the description, for example. But if the same method is used to change the username, ISE returns an error that the password must be provided:
"Validation failed, the 'password' field shouldn't be empty"
