Export mattermost

NethServer Version: 7.9.2009
Module: nethserver-mattermost

HI all,
after a backup ad a restore on different hardware mattermost stopped to work. It started showing wrong users number and worng messages number, so I did a bulk export as per their wiki ;
bin/mattermost export bulk file.json --all-teams
and a bulk import that solved that problem ( now, channels, users and messages are right ).
Then I ran mattermost-bulk-user-create but the users are there and they are skipped even if I change their passwords.
Is there a way to modify passwords for the users without losing their messages? I mean without completely erase users and messages from archive?

Sorry, I don’t get it.

If the users are already there, why do you want to reimport them?

It can be done in Mattermost System Console web interface or with mmctl on command line.
