[keycloak-user] Password policy when password is updated using admin API

Currently Keycloak is not exposed directly to our customers, hence all user operations are being done in our application background using the admin API.

We noticed that when changing user password from the admin API the password policy is not enforced, for example when setting password history policy.

Can you please advise if is it by design ?
If so do you have any suggestion how to handle the password policy in our case (using the admin API we can't get the user current or previous passwords) ?
