How to mass change SSH/Console passwords with Prime

I have a customer that has several hundred cisco devices (switches/routers) that they would like to update all the passwords on.  They currently have all their devices configured in Cisco Prime.  Is there a way to push out new passwords via Prime without having to manually log into each device?

I googled it and was unable to find a cisco document describing this process with Prime.

Thanks in advance.

How to mass change SSH/Console passwords with Prime

Which "Prime" product and version please?

In Prime LMS version 4.x, the procedure is done using a netconfig job and is documented here. You can use one of the pre-built templates around this sort of task or create your own to suit if they don't quite fit.
