Synchronize Users via webservice

An external application is calling a Mendix webservice to synchronize users. All fields synchronize ok except for the password. In the external application it is a MD5 hashstring. In the WSDL the type hashstring is a string. How can I store the MD5 (hash)string into the Mendix user password field (hashstring)?

Afaik, Not. Mendix stores passwords as SSHA hash, and it is not possible to convert MD5 to SSHA; you need the plain password.

Side note: md5 is quite weak, so they should be avoided.
