From this documentation, currently what the User Registration resource does is to register a user that requires password in the Rest API.

Our goal is to call/use this api endpoint http://localhost:8080/user/register?_format=json to create a user once validated via facebook and dont want to have password in the json.

This is what Im getting when tried to remove the pass field

    "message": "No password provided."


"name": { "value": "test03" },
"mail": { "value": "[email protected]" }

Just like when you create a user on user/register, the visibility/requiredness of the password field depends on the verify_mail setting.

If e-mail verification is enabled, then you must not provide a password, if disabled, you must provide one.
