Not able to create users if user id length >12 characters


Hi all,

I'm getting error while creating users if the user id goes beyond 12 characters. The error is as follows:

"An error occurred in the persistence. The original message (possibly not translated) was: "Not a valid SAP user ID: <use-id>. Reason: SAP user ID must contain at least 1 and at most 12 characters". Contact your system administrator."

I'm using ABAP as UME datasource. I changed the security policy for user id(Maximum Length of Logon ID) in UME configuration. But it is not working as I guess there should be some change in ABAP side.

Can anyone help me on this. Waiting for some quick response.

Thanks in advance,
