Maximum Password length

Hi Gurus

We have a requirement to restrict the maximum password length in the abap systems. I could not find any parameter related to this.

I have checked few threads which talks about this issue but could not see any clear solution.

Can you please help me with it.

Cheers

    Can you please elaborate on why you want to do this? What is the background for this requirement?

    I only know about controls for minimum length and ways to restrict the length of generated passwords in the ABAP stack. The standard max length (although you can type beyond that as much as you like) on newer systems is 40 characters.

      Hi Pavan,

      If you are integrating SAP systems with LDAP for authentication and the authentication parameters which will take affect will be of LDAP then you need to set the password related settings in LDAP, someone in your organization who is a LDAP admin can give inputs to you.
