logon to sap without password or auto-logon to sap(r/3 enterprise)

hi folks,

before release 6.xx it was possible to make logon to the system without using a password (generating a sap logon shortcut....), now it seems that this won't work anymore.

we also did this as the guidelines of sap (changing parameters in registry), but it did not work; we're using that all in a citrix terminalserver environment and we need that function for some kinde of touch-screen terminals, where an individual application should start(and make the logon to sap) after switching on the power on that terminal.

does anyone has an idea how we can do that that it works?

kind regards,

    Hi Oliver,

    do you use SNC, or do you save the password into the SAP shortcut? Also, do you get an error message or the popup dialog to enter the password?

    Maybe you could post the .sap file?

    Best regards,

    • Hi Oliver,

      hmmm, I couldn't find note 59804, maybe it was removed. What did it say?

      The point of note 146173 was that you can store a password in a shortcut file if you really want to do that. I think this was even added for your company in the past, Mr Schweinberger was really thankful 😉

      So you're now looking for a way to create a shortcut that does not contain a password, and will also not ask for a password during login?

      Single-Sign-On comes to mind, have you investigated this?

      Best regards,
