What is the command to enable 3rd party SFP+ transceivers on HP switch?

I have several HP-2530 switches and to save some money I purchased the Proline FTLF8526P38BNL-PRO transceivers. I have used after market transceivers in the past without issue but what I am reading is that HP has gone full greed mode and now requires their transceivers.

I get an error that states "Not an HP Networking transceiver , Please go to: www.hp.com/rnd/device_help/2_inform for more info. Port 52" in my log and the unit doesn't recognize the transceiver. and the unit doesn't recognize that it is installed.

Is there an command that I can type in to force the HP to see and use the transceiver?
