Change ABAP passwords



I am running a test scenario for SAP IDM.

It is possible to create and change users from the workflow interface.

If I change the name of the users these changes get distributed to all systems he has an account flag u2013 so good so far.

What I want to do now, is to change a password. Lets assume a user has forgotten his password, a new password should bet set on all target systems. Of course the user needs to change it on his next login.

The UpdateABAP User Task does not carry the MX_PASSWORD attribute. This is logical, as else the password would always be set to the initial value again.

Is it possible, that the password is only updated when it is changed through a task?

Any ideas would be appreciated.
