Password Complexity

Hi I was happy to read following enhancement: http://docs.fortinet.com/auth/3-0-0/FAC-3.0-What%27s-New.pdf Apply Complexity Settings on Randomly Generated Passwords Auto-generated passwords have previously been overly complicated, making login using mobile devices difficult. The ability to enforce password complexity has been implemented to allow administration cotnrol which character combinaction is used in the generation of random passwords. For me, it seems like the password policy applies only, if I increases the security of the passwords. For example, if I increase the minimum required password lenght to 15 characters, then it works perfectly. What I would like to have is the opposite: a less complex password. In an example I reduced the minimum password length to 4, the generated password I recieved contained still ten characters.

This should apply in both directions. I will have this tested today and will create a bug if this is the case.

I have tested this and confirmed the behaviour. I believe we should adhere to what is configured in Authentication > User Account Policies > Passwords so I have raised a bug for this (Ref: 0224755)
