Universal ID – Getting to the Right Account


I have (probably together with many other community members) for some time struggled with login and Universal ID. I have almost given up making this work in an acceptable way, but as a last try, I now ask the community.

Do you know how to work with multiple accounts - at the same time.


I have one Universal ID - multiple email addresses and multiple s-users and multiple p-users.

In this site I use my personal very old P-user originally created when SDN.SAP.COM was first started. I have a lot of content linked to this user and I want to continue using this p-users for all SAP Community sites (Groups, People, Events etc.).

I also have a p-user and a S-users for my own Companys BTP, etc.

As a consultant I have S-users linked to some of my customers' accounts.

All the S-users are linked to different email addresses - because I previously had problems when the users had same email address.

Now the issue is that I often need to work in different web sites with different users at the same time, but often this is not possible.

If I am logged into one site with one of my users and then open a new browser tab or even a new browser window or even another browser and try to login to another site, there will be some kind of login sync between the sites. The result is varying depending on what SAP sites I login to. Sometimes the second site will automatic login with the same user as the first site. Other times I am allowed to login with a new user, but then the first site will switch user to the new user.

Sometimes one of the sites will allow me to logout/login again with a different user and thus giving me the option to work in two sites with 2 different user, but I really haven't found a general solution that works in all cases.

Of course I can see the conflicts and difficulties in my behavior, but I think my need to work with different users at the same time is a common requirement for many people.

Currently I am considering to let one browser run via VPN and let another browser bypass the VPN via some split tunneling, but I'm not sure that will help.

Kind regards
