Username restriction

How can the creation of usernames be restricted in ABAP systems, so it can’t contain the danish characters æøå?

We have the problem with usernames in the portal, which can’t recognize these characters in usernames.

    Usernames are given by security admin (a relative small group of people) so solve your problem by a procedure.

    In that case I'd recommend to use the UME to create user accounts - rather than the ABAP user management (SU01), directly.

    In general: in non-unicode systems you should avoid using any characters (especially for the userID or the password) which is not contained in the ASCII character set - to ensure that the user is able to enter his userID / password in order to logon to the system. In unicode systems, however, it should always be posssible to use any character (just that it can be cumbersome to locate those characters on your keyboard ...).

    Cheers, Wolfgang
