I've tried to set this thorugh API

PATCH v3/Users(id)
Body
{  "Security": {
    "PasswordNeverExpires": true
  }
}

Response returns user object, but PasswordNeverExpires is still set to false.

Hi Aleksandras. Unfortunately you cannot edit an individual user's password expiration. You'd need to set the account wide password expiration, which would affect all users.

I too would like a granular password policy control in order to extend the life of the user IDs involved with our automated processes.  As the admin I was searching in vain for this. 

But I do have a question around the existing password policy controls for a Citrix technician:

In the Security Settings Admin screen at the top it says "Any changes you make will go into effect the next time a user changes his or her password" -- so let's say I want an individual employee's password to expire in 60 days and everyone else's in 90 days: if I set the account-wide expiration to 60 days, save the change, change the password for that individual, then set the account-wide expiration back to 90 days, will that individual's password still expire in 60 days?

Thanks for any info!!!
