SAP Portal User Logon Password Reset

Hello Friends,

We have SAP portal which authenticates user from SRM ABAP system user database.

Now I have added the reset password link in portal logon page. It prompted me to change password and when I provided my Logon ID and email; it sent me the new password via mail.

Later I used that password to login to portal and changed my password too. I could seamlessly log into portal with the new password.

But the new password doesn't work in the SRM system, It is still referencing the old password.

The SRM iViews are working as expected since SSO is works on user ID which is the same in both systems.

Please suggest any implication if I keep the same settings and expose portal to end users for password reset functionality.

Regards, Biswajit.

    In case of Dual stack, the reset of the password on the EP will not reset the same on the AS ABAP. In dual stack the datasource database is on ABAP. Your scenario will work in AS Java only (single stack). This is the same matter addressed in this forum thread.

    When password reset is necessary, in dual stack, the password should be reset on both the AS ABAP and AS Java sides.

      When password is reset from ABAP, it is reflected in portal but not vice versa.

      Please let me know if I change the UME xml to read write rather than read only.

      Furthermore, SSO is working fine since it requires same user ID in both systems. In that case, can I keep this set up or is there any impact to system.
