Why won't Jira allow me to create a user and select the password for them?

We use the JIRA Cloud instance.  Every time I try to create a new user and set the password myself, it tells me to pick a stronger password.  Our setting is only set to Fair right now, and I'm using mixed case, numbers and special characters.

Is there something I am doing incorrectly?

Thanks to anyone that can help.

Hello Brian,

Please use this page as reference. Atlassian Cloud uses an entropy score to evaluate the strength of people's passwords.
