    Thanks for posting in Q&A platform.

    The Minimum password length policy setting determines the least number of characters that can make up a password for a user account. You can set a value of between 1 and 14 characters, or you can establish that no password is required by setting the number of characters to 0.

    Here are links for your reference:

    Password must meet complexity requirements
