Password support on Okta

Hi,
are there special password rules on Okta?
When users try to reset their Active Directory password on our Okta instance, they cannot use some special characters like "#" or "§"

Is there a document that shows all supported characters?

Thanks

Hi Florian,

I am not aware of any characters that Okta cannot support. I tried resetting my password to one containing both of the characters you have above and was able to do so successfully.

Hope that helps!
