    This is on the backlog for a future release.
    We can’t control the GPO settings for the password complexity which means that if the Admin overrides password rules via central GPO settings then we can’t enforce the Central Device Encryption password rules on the endpoint. However, if there are no password rules defined via GPO, the Central Device Encryption password rules will apply.

        Hi Robert, thanks for your feedback.
        This is absolutely fine, as long as there's a notice that GPO Bitlocker pwd can overrule this setting and in order to define it with Central Device Encryption no GPO Bitlocker pwd policy must be set.
        Is there a rough time plan for the "future release" are we talking about 2017 or 2018?
        Thanks.
