User Password self service with security questions on ABAP stack

Hi ,

We have one requirement that to enable the SAP users to reset the password by themselves.

Currently we have only ABAP atack and there is no Java stack.Kindly let me know the possibility of achieving the user self passowrd reset  on ABAP stack.

We donot have Identity Management integrated.So we can skip achieving this using Identity management.

Regards,

Ramesh

    There is no standard self-service for passwords as part of Netweaver "basis". So you will have to do a search for vendor options (eg. SAP GRC offers it as well as some 3rd party vendors) or develop such a service yourself implementing BAPIs.

    The most "poor man's" version of it is to have a portal with AD authentication and logon tickets to SAP ABAP -> user can then logon as themselves without a password and start a service transaction which resets the password via a workflow and emails it to them. This will work for password locks but not administrator locks.

    Cheers,

      A basic search will show you lots of docs on logon tickets and BAPIs for the user admin. Take your pick on help.sap.com to start with.

      Colleen's suggestion of getting rid of the password is even better.

    as an alternative, can you do away with passwords (at least of majority of users) and implement SSO? SAP GRC implementation just for PSS probably isn't justifiable (it is a separate component with plug-in to the ABAP systems).
