Generate random passwords

Hi,

 

We have build a flow to automate the onboarding proccess using the azure actions. In the create user action we can hardcode a password but is there a way to have a random password generated?

 

Many thanks in advance for your support!

 

Kind regards,

Tom

Hi @Anonymous,

 

I afraid that the only way should be take a try with the rand() expression to gets a random integer from the specified range as below:

The expression in the Password column as below:

rand(10000000, 99999999)

 

Best regards,

Alice

I do this using a String variable with the Expression "substring(guid(),0,8)" but that may not be complex enough for some password requirements.  I suppose you could use "toUpper()" for the first few characters of the string and leave the last few lowercase to add complexity.
