When the minimum password length in tenant/config is modified, it affects passwords on new users only but it does not affect changing the password for existing users.
Steps to reproduce
1-'Vanilla' install of alfresco-process-services-1.8.0-windows-installer.exe.
2-Navigate to: http://localhost:8080/activiti-app > Sign in using: firstname.lastname@example.org (username) / admin (password).
3-Click on the square box in the top right corner > Tenants > Config > See that 'Password minimum length' is 8 by default.
4-Click on Users > Create user:
First name: dummy1
Last name: dummy1
Press Save button
5-Tenants > Config > Change Password minimum length from 8 to 5.
6-Users > Enable email@example.com > Select an action: Change Password.
Minimum length should be 5 characters //User can set a password with 5 characters
Password is too short; it must be at least 8 characters. User is still required to set a password with 8 characters
