Feature: #97391 - Use password policy for password reset in ext:backend

See forge#97391


The password reset feature for TYPO3 backend users now considers the configurable password policy introduced in #97388.


The formerly hardcoded minimum length of 8 chars for the new password has been removed. Instead, the globally configured password policy is now taken into account when a TYPO3 backend user resets the password. The TYPO3 default password policy contains the following password requirements:

  • At least 8 chars
  • At least one number
  • At least one upper case char
  • At least one special char
  • Must be different than current password (if available)
