The AutoGeneratePassword property makes it possible to create user accounts without entering a password for them. For example, this functionality is useful when an administrator creates a new user's account and then gives a password to the user.

You cannot create users using the CreateUserWizard if AutoGeneratePassword is set to true and the PasswordStrengthRegularExpression property is set in the application's Web.config. An error message indicating an invalid password will result.
