I'm setting up new users in an Azure MSSQL Contained Database.

I want new users to be forced to reset their password on the first login.

I see the ability to set a new password documented https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/t-sql/statements/alter-user-transact-sql?view=sql-server-ver15 but I do not see the ability to force the reset.

Any ideas?

This is currently not supported and you cannot use Must_Chance, Check_Policy or Check_expiration as of now.

Keyword or statement option 'check_policy' is not supported in this version of SQL Server.
