Need to set minimum 12-character password policy for Entra ID P1 license, where we have cloud only users. By default, we have minimum of 8-character password which does not meet the Organization standard and considered to be a weak password policy.

Hi,

Our organization have license with Microsoft Entra ID P1, and all the users inside it, are prompted to reset their password with minimum 8-character password. But as per our security standards we require users to set passwords with minimum 12-character password. Please help in how we set a policy where we can change from 8-character minimum password to 12-character lengthy passwords. Note: We have cloud-only users, and we don't have any on-premises AD or Server.Passwrd Policy.PNG

    It's currently not possible to change the minimum 8-character password policy for users on Cloud Only Entra Environment. Read More about it here: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/entra/identity/authentication/concept-sspr-policy#microsoft-entra-password-policies

    Password restrictions A minimum of 8 characters and a maximum of 256 characters.Requires three out of four of the following types of characters:- Lowercase characters- Uppercase characters- Numbers (0-9)- Symbols (see the previous password restrictions)
    Password expiry duration (Maximum password age) Default value: 90 days. If the tenant was created after 2021, it has no default expiration value. You can check the current policy with Get-MsolPasswordPolicy.The value is configurable by using the Set-MsolPasswordPolicy cmdlet from the Azure AD module for PowerShell.
