Learn Regular Expressions by Building a Password Generator - Step 65

Tell us what’s happening:

Describe your issue in detail here.
I don’t understand why it’s rejecting my arguments. I see nothing wrong with my code all it asked was to add four 1s as the last four arguments.

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        
        if all(
            constraint <= len(re.findall(pattern, password))
            for constraint, pattern in constraints
        ):
            break

    return password
    

# User Editable Region

 new_password = generate_password(8,1,1,1,1)
 print(new_password)

I’m not sure what you mean. I added the code I have so far and what it says to me what else do I edit?

Check your indentation :eyes:

It is great that you solved the challenge, but instead of posting your full working solution, it is best to stay focused on answering the original poster’s question(s) and help guide them with hints and suggestions to solve their own issues with the challenge.

We are trying to cut back on the number of spoiler solutions found on the forum and instead focus on helping other campers with their questions and definitely not posting full working solutions.
