Password complexity rules

All managed passwords generated by the Privileged Access Service consist of at least one upper case letter, one lower case letter, one number, one special character, and allow consecutive repeated characters regardless of the system type. Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS systems, restrict passwords to a maximum of 31 characters. The following additional password rules apply:

  • Minimum password length: 12 characters.
  • Maximum password length: 31 characters.
  • Supported special characters: !$%&()*+,-./:;<=>?[\]^_{|}~

You should keep in mind that only the Privileged Access Service will know the managed password being generated and stored. You should not select this option if you don’t want the Privileged Access Service to manage the password for the account.
