Difference between password and passcode

Hi,

I want to create an Android work configuration profile in Intune similar to the workspace one. But I am a little bit confused, like in workspace one, all the settings are for passcode, but in Intune, there are only password settings, not passcode. So, I just want to know if the password and passcode are both the same or different.

Thanks!

    @Anonymous Thanks for posting in our Q&A.

    Honestly, I didn't use workspace one to manage devices.

    From intune's point of view, for Android Enterprise corporate-owned work profile devices, password is used for two parts. One is device password, the other is work profile password. For more details, please refer to the following article:
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/intune/configuration/device-restrictions-android-for-work#device-password
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/intune/configuration/device-restrictions-android-for-work#work-profile-password

    Based on my research about passcode in workspace one's article, it has device passcode and work passcode too.

    Note: Non-Microsoft link, just for the reference.

    Based its description, I think they are same.
