As a user generating a password automatically I should be able to change the default length and character scheme

Q1. What is the problem that you are trying to solve?
Not all organizations and systems have the same scheme and currently the auto generate button only yield one kind of password length and format.

Q2 - Who is impacted?
Everybody.

Q3 - Why is it important and/or urgent?
Choosing a password pattern is often not up to the user, making passbolt flexible will support a better user experience.

Q4 - What is your proposed solution? (optional)

  • A user should be able to define the length of the password they want to generate
  • A user should be able to define the character scheme (alphnumeric only, special chars, digit only, caps, etc.)
  • As an admin I should be able to define the default password length and character scheme for my organization.

Examples:

Especially for the Business/Enterprise version this should be a mandatory feature. Is there an implementation planned for the upcomming releases this year?

@abrix yes this is planned as soon as we have finished the migration to react. Most likely Q4 2020.
