Update data source password using Powershell without prompting user to input password

Hi 

I have used Powershell to create a datasource in Power BI Report server. The code works fine, but only thing is, it prompts user to input password. I want to pass this value programatically to avoid manual input. Is there a way to update the password programatically. I have used below code to create a datasource 

 

 

New-RsDataSource -RsFolder "/Datasources" -Name "Xyz" -Extension "Oracle" -CredentialRetrieval Store -ConnectionString $ConnString -DatasourceCredentials "Username" -Overwrite

It looks like you can add a password, I would follow the example set out here.
