>   Add a User-Password attribute.  The issue is that you're adding it to the "control" list.  This is wrong.  Add it to the "request" list, so that it's added to the incoming packet.  It should then work.

Thank you very much for this hint Alan; changing from "control" to
"request" was indeed all that was needed for the User-Password
attribute to be added and for the REST module to be called. Everything
now works.

Thank you for your patience,
