xsa_dev password

Dec 04, 2016 at 04:17 PM

it looks like hana express, and maybe other editions too, comes with a predetermined expiration for xsa_dev user password, but the logon screen is not showing the password status. is hana studio still the only client that shows the password status for xsa_dev and allows the password (re-)creation?

what if one hadn't the studio preinstalled or would not have access to the latest studio installation file?

EDIT: this password seems subject to the same policy as every other password (except maybe for SYSTEM) and it comes preinstalled with default of only 7 days for initial passwords.

As you are using the HXE versions with applications also XS classic is available.

With that you can use the HANA Web-based development workbench to set/reset the passwords of your user. You can either use the SQL console (http://hxehost:8000/sap/hana/ide/catalog) or the Security application (http://hxehost:8000/sap/hana/ide/security) to do that.

Hi Florian,

does it make sense to use http to do any security work? i was always taught https to be more 'secure'.

thx for responding, greg


You just need to configure https for XS classic. Then you should have no doubts anymore :-).
