If I create a DB authenticated user like this:

how do I control the password options (must_change, complexity, expiration etc.)?

Note, I am not talking about a login, but a user without a login, authenticated by the contained db.

Thanks for any help.

Contained database users do not have these options. They are available only for logins, which uses "more extensive password policies available from Windows".
