Yes, you can only do that with the HTTP API. The web UI uses that 
underneath, but we don't expose that function through the add-user UI. 
You could craft a special configuration for "import configuration" to do 
it via the UI.

Not sure what you mean by "programmatically" if not through the HTTP API.

Cheers, Simon
