1.- When attempting to create a new Admin / Developer APEX user, it fails with the "Password Rules Exception":
     "Schema password must be 30 ASCII characters or less, and not include a double quote. The password must also conform to any password complexity rules defined for the database."

2.- The same error occurs when creating a new workspace, as a new Admin user is created as part of the workspace creation.
