Allow to customize minimum password length in IIAS-DB2 login

Today we have a restriction of minimum character length (12) on passwords for users in the IIAS's DB2 database. We know that we should encourage for increasing this limit, however, if we consider in the ecosystem of the applications of a banking sector, there are popular legacy systems with restrictions of fewer characters (8), and living with IIAS systems with this policy is a problem for users to have their credentials synchronized.

Who would benefit from this IDEA? Customer BANORTE and the majority of customers in the Banking sector
How should it work?

1) Do you have a proposed solution?
We request that you enable a configuration file that allows you to have passwords of fewer characters (8) in the DB2 database.

2) and what would the measurables benefits of the solution be?
In this way, all Bank employees could automatically synchronize their passwors with the rest of the applications without the risk of having different passwords or of dedicating dedicated administrators to carry out this activity.

3) What are you doing today to workaround the problem?
Today, the only way to solve this is to have a different password for the DB2 DB of the IIAS system, which creates a risk for their administration and possible failures in the operation within the IIAS system.
