RZ parameter ( login/password_max_idle_productive ) on selective users?

Hi all,

I have an inquiry with regards to the rz10 parameter login/password_max_idle_productive .

Currently, I have setup this parameter such that users that is idle for 30days will be automatically locked.

My inquiry is that could I setup SAP system such that certain users will be omitted from the parameter above?

Example, users with admin privileges will not have the need to sign in at least once every 30days just to ensure that his/her id is not idle.

Thank you.

    I am pretty sure that is not intended to be possible...

    Perhaps you want to consider re-interpreting the meaning of the parameter to be "Number of days of idle productive password after it should have been changed" and then set the value to be 30 days greater than the validity parameter.

    This is also mentioned in the documentation in RZ11 if I remember correctly.

      Well, as I wrote: that's the task of an Identity Management system.

      The NWAS ABAP does (currently) not support multiple security policies - only one. So, it's not possible to implement what you are looking for (w/o using an IdM).
