    Hi Sathish,

    You can change the default minimum length for passwords using the profile parameter login/min_password_lng.

      It may be because permissible values for this paramerter is between 3 to 8. For NetWeaver 2004s onwards you can give up to 40 characters.

      Are you giving more than 8?

      Strong word of warning: don't follow that advice.

      You'll destroy your ABAP system.

      Reason: you cannot simply modify the DDIC structure of such an elementary data structure. It took us quite some effort to implement the feature which is shipped with NetWeaver 7.0 (aka "NW 2004s", basis for ERP 6.0) - because it is also mandatory to modify several kernel components.

      I'm sorry, but it is impossible to downport all those changes / enhancements.

      (It is an incompatible change; that's why we had to wait for the next major release change: 6.x -> 7.x).

      Regards, Wolfgang

    Hello Sathish,

    As far as as I know, there are different options:

    When you say "possible", do you mean making a change to the maximum password length possible for the user, or do you want to set a minimum length for permitted passwords by the user, or do you want to fix it to a possible length, or a hard permitted length?

    Perhaps you are referring to a problem with higher releases communicating with lower releases? If you use the search for "all" date-range on the term "downward" here in this topic forum and "downward AND password" on sdn.sap.com, help.sap.com and service.sap.com then there is more information available.

    Here is a thread which I know of, which might help you further:

    [Sap Logon password Length|Sap Logon password Length;

    Kind regards,

    Julius

    Goto RZ10

    "login/max_password_lng" and increase as you required
