E-Recruitment - Loggin in Issues in E-Rec instance after ALE transfer


We are running E-Rec in seperate instance and we have plans to implement the ALE Data transfer as a scheduled periodical Background job from HR system to E-Rec system.

We have also cutomized the ALE to set a default password when the data is transferred in to the E-Rec system.(We had done this to avoid the time & effort required from SAP Basis admin to reset the password of each E-Rec user whenever the ALE data transfer is performed)

After performing the ALE data transfer, when logging in the portal and accessing the E-Rec start page link the system prompts the user for a new password.

We are looking at an option where the ALE program can be modified to set a confirmed password instead of initial password.

Any suggestions on fixing this issue please. I request a solution for this on a high priority.

    Sorry to be this direct,

    but the first question which comes to my mind: Are you kidding?

    You describe that you set the password of each user to the same default value just the bais admin is too lazy? And if this would not be enough you want that everyone can keep this password for eternity so everyone has always the possibility to log into every account including the recruiter / admin ones as they would be part of the ALE as all employees are part of the ALE and noone ever has to change the password (usually if you do not force someone to change his password he will never do)? Seems your security team died from an heart attac when u presented this idea so they do not have to be asked any longer.

    Back to business:

    The ALE creates a password on user creation. If the candidate is updated later the password won't be touched. Also if the user already exists when ALE is transfering an employee for the first time, the user will keep his password as before assigne authorization.

    E-Recruiting has a standard function that the user can get a new password and unlock the user so no admin has to move a finger as long as the candidate has an email address where the system can send the new password.

    If you do not want to bother the user with varius logins and passwords whild keeping a secure solution you shoul invest in a SSO solution.

    Best Regards
