how long the Okta temporary password is valid?

There is an option in Admin to generate the Temporary Password - how long is it valid? 

Is there a setting to set it to, let's say 48 Hrs?

Thank you.

Hello Vlad,

A temporary password never expires, since it's marked as an "expired password" from the get-go, meaning the platform requries the user to change their password as soon as they log in using the temporary one.

The temporary password lifetime cannot be controlled, due to the aforementioned behaviour.

Thank you,

Hi,

Can a user use the temporary password as a new password. We have tried that scenario and it is working, I think Okta should not allow that and in Password Policy we have checked not to use previous passwords.
