Increase minimum password length for Local Users

Local users in OO are required to set a password with a minimum of 6 characters. To provide adequate security for these users stored locally on the server an increase of the minimum password length to at least a value of 8 should be the new policy setting.

Hi Ellis, 

As you may know in the latest versions OO leverage on the IDM as well to handle the authentication mechanism. In IDM you have the option to customize your password policies.

Hi Daniel,

Thank you very much for the suggestion. We will be looking into this solution as well. I would still like to have this idea up on the idea exchange as it would be good to have this policy setting implemented directly into future versions of OO.
