How to provision PW set by self service ?

Hi all

I've set up IDM 7.1SP5 and try to provision passwords.

I could successfully set up Self service pw reset -> it sets the new pw in the IDM and in the UMD also (I marked teh "UME" option also).

I try to provision that password using ChangepasswordOfABAPUser -> but this task only sets the initial password set in the global constants. This is what I do not understand. ChangepasswordOfABAPUser calls function sap_getPassword but provisions then the (static) pw set by the constant as mentioned before.

What task/function is to call ?

Do I have to set up such a task/function by myself (no corresponding template available) ?

Where can i find more informations about that ?

    Hi Stefan,

    If I understand your question right, you're trying to set the password of your ABAP user to something other than the preset initial password constant; if you were to pass in your MX_ENCRYPTED_PASSWORD instead, you could then set your ABAP user's initial password to the password already stored for that user within MX_ENCRYPTED_PASSWORD:


    password = $FUNCTION.sap_getPassword(%MX_ENCRYPTED_PASSWORD%)$$

    instead of:

    password = $FUNCTION.sap_getPassword(%$glb.DEFAULT_PASSWORD%)$$

    Even this method would only set the Initial ABAP password for the user and not a productive password; you would have to refer to NOTE: 1287410 for details on setting a productive password.

    Does this answer your question?
