Hi everyone,

We running O365 exchange and I want to set password complexity to minimum 12. But I could not find any option in O365 Admin Portal and azure AD.

 

Thanks,

Nisar Khan

You cannot control this in O365, best you can do is configure the expiration window. If you want to be able to granularly control password policies, you need to redirect the auth process to your AD or external federation provider.

Yeah, this is weird. Any idea why it’s ”hard coded” to 8 characters minimum cloud-only? Seen a couple of UVs for the possibility to configure.
