From original ticket in the identity service redmine instance (

> When i tried to add a user by running this command:

> It showed the creation succeeded. However, the password filed is not "$2a$04$csilPspPJdMx8zt7L9XKXeUxZjkPgKZd.o7TTPC0oJOFmT2kQ/E92". So the loging in can't be successful.

This is a problem in the Metacat code base so I'm moving this here so we can more easily track the 2.4.0 release.
