Is the random password generator available for applications added by users

Hi,

I'd like to offer this functionality:  https://help.okta.com/en/prod/Content/Topics/Security/Generating_a_Random_Password.htm to our users that have opted to use Okta for their password "vault".  Is this an available option?

Thanks in advance!

The Random Password Generator is currently only available for SWA Apps where the User sets Username and Password, but only upon the User changing their pasword from within the App's interface. You can direct users to change their password after initially logging in, and the plugin should detect the chagne password fields and offer a Random Password.
Hopefully this will help, and you can also put in a Product Enhancement request via the Ideas Forum if you wnat to use this functinality in aother manner.
