Hello Machiel,

you need to use the resetCredential(..) endpoint of a user resource,
e.g.: userRessource.get(userId).resetPassword(passwordCred);

Here is an complete example for the Keycloak AdminClient:
which shows how to:
- create a user
- set user attributes
- assign roles (realm roles as well as client specific roles)
- set a password
