Automate Local Account Password Complexity

Currently their is no Complexity on a local account in Automate. i.e can have 12345678

Would like to add local password complexity algorithm.

ie. min nbr chars

    Our organization would also like to be able to enforce the minimum characters to 12, if this is something that can be changed for each org's needs that would probably work for most. Automate has the password complexity so we would greatly appreciate Infra being able to do the same. Thanks!
