Describe the bug

Setting password length through

public void ConfigureServices(IServiceCollection services){
  services.Configure<IdentityOptions>(options =>
    options.Password.RequiredLength = 1;

does not change the non-scaffolded razor page as it always says "The Password must be at least 6 and at max 100 characters long." if inputed password is < 6 characters.

To Reproduce

Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Create a new ASP.NET Core Web 2.1 application
  2. Select "Web application (Model-View Controller)"
  3. Select "Change authentication"
    3.1. Select "Individual User Account"
  4. Select Ok to have the project scaffolded.
  5. Open file Startup.cs
  6. Add
services.Configure<IdentityOptions>(options =>
  options.Password.RequiredLength = 1;

to method ConfigureServices.
7. Press F5 (or select your favourite start-debug method).
8. In the web browser that pops up
8.1. Select Register
8.2. Type "" as user name (or select your favourite fast-to-type email addresss).
8.3. Type "a" as password (or any password shorter than 6 characters).
8.4. Select Register

Expected behavior

The web page should have been updated with information about successful creation of user.

Actual behaviour

The web page says "The Password must be at least 6 and at max 100 characters long."

Additional context

I have a question at stack overflow that explains the same issue if this is not clear enough.

This issue might be duplicate of #774.

Yeah its a dupe of #774 same issue, the UI has a model validation attribute which controls that error message, while the IdentityOptions is configuring identity itself

Does this mean the suggested solution would be to scaffold out the 4 pages and change the StringLength attribute?

Yep exactly
