DNN Password Requirements

    Looking for the DNN Password Requirements settings in DNN 8.0.3. Specifically I'd like to require upper and lowercase along with alphanumeric, but I can only find the minRequiredPasswordLength and minRequiredNonalphanumericCharacters in the web.config.

    Is there a way to require upper and lower case also??

      I remember reading this in DNN GitHub (https://github.com/dnnsoftware/Dnn.Platform/issues/2867), not exactly your case but good to explore. Particularly, Sebastian's link for PasswordStrengthRegularExpression (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/api/system.web.security.membership.passwordstrengthregularexpression?view=netframework-4.8).

      A sample regular expression is below. Minimum 6 non-whitespace characters, at least one digit, an uppercase and lowercase character, and a non-alphanumeric character.

        Yes, using a Regex is the way to go for other password options.
