Generate a strong random password functionality

Hello,
We're just getting started with OKTA and I'm interested in trying out the Generate a strong random password functionality desribed in this article - https://support.okta.com/help/articles/Knowledge_Article/Generate-a-Strong-Random-Password

However when I go to the change password page of an application I have configured in Okta (i.e. Microsoft Outlook) I do not got get the Okta change password popup as described in the article.  So I have a couple of questions.
1.  Is this functionality only available for specific applications, if so is there a list somewhere?
2.  Is there a system configuration somewhere that I need enabled?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Hello Dave,

Drew and I talked about this feature and it turns out that it actually is available provided your org admin enables the option User sets username and password in the app's sign-on settings. Supported browsers are Internet Explorer 11, Firefox, Chrome, and Safari. The document has been updated to state these prerequisites. Apologies for the confusion. 

Please reach out if you have any questions.

Thanks,
