Hi has anyone got the grub2 password setting to work without it prompting for user and password before booting on the OL8 BETA release?

If I run the command "grub2-setpassword" it sets the password in the user.cfg file it creates just fine but when you reboot it prompts for the user and password at the grub selection screen before it will boot. The default behaviour should be for it to NOT prompt for a user / password surely?

I have looked and it is not obvious where you can add "--unrestricted" to the menuentry as it was in previous releases etc
