Disable Initial Password Reset.

Hello;

Is it possible to set that the user do not change the initial password

when created or even if the SAP Administrator reset it, the first time

the user log on the system.

Thanks;

    I don't believe this is possible with a dialog user without modifying the SAP logon procedure code (possible but can be problematic).

    More importantly, what would you want to do this? The change initial password is a good password control.

    Hi;

    We would like to use client based SSO in our company. This SSO application is client based so we could' t use SSO profile parameters. I asked this question may be there is another relevant profile parameters.

    Thanks;

    Hi Ali,

    Yes, it is possible; for that follow below steps:

    1.Start the Config Tool C:\usr\sap\<SID>\<engine-instance>\j2ee\configtool\configtool.bat

    Ex: D:\usr\sap\F02\JC00\j2ee\configtool --> configtool.bat

    2.Goto cluster-data --> Global server configuration --> services --> com.sap.security.core.ume.service

    3.Click on below property and set value is FALSE and click and "SET" button.

    "ume.logon.security_policy.password_change_required = FALSE"

    4.Save.

    5. Restart the engine.

    Now

    1. Login with an "Administrator"

    2. Create a user and define a password like "init123"

    3. logoff from "administrator"

    4. login with new user; password is "init123"

    now system will not ask to change password.

    Reward Points; if it is usefull.

    Thanks,

    Nagaraju Parlapalli

    Hi Ali,

    Check for the parameter "login/password_change_for_SSO".

    I think by setting value 3 with this parameter we can make, deactivation of password..

    Read the documentation of this parameter..

    It is possible to bypass the initial password change requirement by setting the users to be of type SERVICE instead of DIALOG. However, there's a cost to this: SERVICE users cannot change their own passwords. It has to be done for them by system administrators. So, you would have to weigh the consequences of doing something like this against the perceived benefit.
