We have a customized Logon page for our EP 6.0 SP2 portal. I have added a link that calls a .par file that is used to reset a user's password in R/3 (4.6C). The user must first enter specific information, then a BAPI is called to validate the data and reset the password.
I'm having trouble setting up an authentication scheme for this. If I use the 'uidpwdlogon' scheme with user mapping in place, it won't run the reset application until I log onto the portal. This of course is useless. If I change it to use the 'anonymous' scheme with user mapping, I can run the application, but can't get the connection to R/3 to work.
I could code a JCO connection but don't want to hard code the URL or I lose transportability.
Anyone have any ideas on how to do this?
