Changing password policy

Hello,

should be an easy one for you. I want to check the current password rules, I remember it has something to do with a parameter. But where can I find it? I want to change the maximum number of password retries before the user gets locked out.

Thanks for any help!

kind regards,

Peter Selter

    There is no such thing because the user stays on the outside if the password is not correct.

    What happens however is that the password is locked (not the user ID).

    Just search tcode RZ11 for login/* and you will find it easily, and it's dependencies.

    Cheers,

      Having both the same has the disadvantage that the user is not informed that they have just locked their password, as the session disappears first.

      Greater makes less sense, as why would the user continue if the PWD is locked? This would only possibly make sense a few seconds before midnight, but that is optional.

      The defaults (3 for session and 5 for lock) are good ones to use, in my opinion.

      Cheers,

    Hi JP,

    All the above answers are correct however I would like to suggest to execute the Standard Parameter report. To achieve this please follow the steps:

    Execute SA38 (ABAP Program Execution)

    In report section give RSUSR003 and execute

    This will report will show maximum of Security Paramters and you can design your security policy.

    For doing the changes in parameter execute RZ10.

    Thanks

      > RSUSR003

      There is now also a transaction by the same name, which does the same thing.

      But you will need more authorizations to do it this way, than knowing what you are looking for in RZ11.

      Cheers,

      Julius
