Suppress browser Password Management on PasswordField in ABAP WebDynpro

Hello – We have ESS on a Netweaver Portal with SSO. Also in our Launchpad/WebDynpro ABAP framework we have a WebDynpro application controlling a Question Based Authentication step. We have set the passwordField Property to “X” on the Input Field where users answer their Question, so that their input is masked. But now if you’re using, for example, Google Chrome as your browser and you have Manage Passwords turned On, Chrome is offering to save this Question answer input and make it available the next time you log in. We want to suppress this, regardless of what settings users have in their browsers – but we haven’t found any solution in SAP. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi Keith,

    I am not aware of some ready-to-use API in Web Dynpro ABAP to achieve this. The fact that I don't know of one doesn't mean one is not out there - maybe you'll find something or one of the community members will and it will be shared here (or linked to it).

    That being said, I can think of a work around that might help you. If you take a look at the solution here, I can advise you to implement it in your app by integrating an HTML island (some help you might need) and following the solution from there.
