Login using Encrypted Password

Hello Everyone,


When we create an local account in F5 , it's password is encrypted by F5 and stored .

With a GET Rest API , we can retrieve encrypted password .

is there any way where we can use this encrypted password to login F5 with the same account .

My requirement is mainly to Use encrypted for REST API calls to configure F5 not to login GUI.

keeping plain text password is risk .

If something like this available then please let know how to implement it and if not then how this can be achieved .
