When adding a new user to G Suite, you can:

  • Create a password: Automatically generate it or enter one here.

...

  • (Optional) Ask the user to change this password the next time they sign in.

But if you choose Automatically generate then Ask the user to... is grayed out as No.

Does it mean the user won't get asked to change their automatic password?

I assume there are 2 possible answers here:

  1. No, the user will just keep the generated password.
  2. Yes, the user will be forced to change the generated password, and Google actually meant to gray out a Yes choice rather than a No one.

Well, it's indeed a visual bug in Google.

When you choose Automatically generate then Ask the user to... is supposed to be grayed out as Yes, because that's exactly what it does.

I wonder what is the chance of Google fixing it to display correctly.
