Your code so far

import re
import secrets
import string


def generate_password(length, nums, special_chars, uppercase, lowercase):
    # Define the possible characters for the password
    letters = string.ascii_letters
    digits = string.digits
    symbols = string.punctuation

    # Combine all characters
    all_characters = letters + digits + symbols

    while True:
        password = ''
        # Generate password
        for _ in range(length):
            password += secrets.choice(all_characters)
       
        constraints = [
            (nums, r'\d'),
            (lowercase, r'[a-z]'),
            (uppercase, r'[A-Z]'),            
            (special_chars, fr'[{symbols}]')            
        ]

        # Check constraints
        for constraint, pattern in constraints:
            if constraint <= len(re.findall(pattern, password)):
#above is what i tried doing not working even tried
#if  len(re.findall(pattern, password)) <= constraint:
#I don't know any other method to use.

    return password

# new_password = generate_password(8)
# print(new_password)

Hi, welcome to the forum!
We see you have posted some code but did you have a question?

(You have not filled out the “Tell us what’s happening:” field above)

Hello Ucebethuel,

You just have to compare it, the question didn’t mention an if statement.
If you remove the if it should pass.
