Using Powershell to change sftp site passwords

I use WINSCP to exchange files with an AS400 system. I use it via Powershell and have the file transfer integrated into a larger script that does a number of things, all automated.

The password rules on the AS400 for the SFTP account are now changing to require that the password on the AS400 change every 30 days.

I have already updated my Powershell script to generate a new password and assign it to the account on the AS400. Is there a way I can also update the WINSCP password via Powershell?

OR... Is there a way to supply the WINSCP password each time I want to connect with WINSCP? Again, I use WinSCPnet.dll via Powershell and would rather not switch over to doing "scripting".

Thanks.

Sorry, I do not understand any of your questions.

What do you mean by "WINSCP password"?

You have to supply the password each time I want to connect with WINSCP.

Maybe, if you show us your script,. it will have it easier for us to understand, what you want.

My bad...

I got ahead of myself. I do exactly what I asked in another of my Powershell scripts:

$sessionOptions = New-Object WinSCP.SessionOptions -Property @{
Protocol = $fptProtocoliSeries
HostName = $ftpAddressiSeries
UserName = $ftpUseriSeries
Password = $ftpPassiSeries
SshHostKeyFingerprint = $ftpKeyiSeries
}

Never mind (long and hard day)...
