I am creating a user using MS API to create user. While doing so I am randomly generating a password via my python script which is being send in the api request body.

But it fails due to password not complying the complexity.

Is there any way to get random password genearated from MS api OR any suggested library in python which complies with MS password complexity policy.

    Python:

    import random  
    import string  
      
    # get random password pf length 8 with letters, digits, and symbols  
    characters = string.ascii_letters + string.digits + string.punctuation  
    password = ''.join(random.choice(characters) for i in range(8))  
    print(password)
