How to force user password reset every x months

Hello everyone,
I am trying to figure out a way to reset every user’s password every x months and possibly have it being emailed to them.
This is a very much needed feature becouse the local company I currently am working at needs to change their passwords for security measures.
Thank you in advance for your answers.

Openfire currently has not such mechanism to do so directly, but it can be backed by an LDAP directory for authorising users. Active Directory, for instance, implements the sort of security features you’re looking for.

Thank you for your answer, is there any documentation of how AD works?
