Create custom users via API

Is it possible to create custom users (in DSC->Custom directory) via an API?

I've looked through both the QMS API and the code for the qv-user-manager power tool, but all I see is the ability to create CALs.

I really miss some 'getting started' documentation for the QMS API. It's great that it's actually documented in the QMSAPIDocumentation.chm file, but it's a rather extensive API so it feels a bit like looking for a needle in a hay stack...

I ended up using the ODBC connectivity, storing the users in a DB. This sounds like a much better solution than using XML.

I found that custom users are stored in an XML file (C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\DirectoryServiceConnector\CustomDirectoryData.xml)

It is possible to update this XML to create users. However the XML file will not be read unless the service is restarted or possibly some cache expiry duration.

Just wanted to know, if you modify the CustomDirectoryData.xml , i could see we cannot put password there.When i open it, the passwords are in encrypted form.Is there anything there to populate the password also.
