We have implemented the SAP EP 6.0 SP2. We are using a few standard SAP IACs like training center, trainings attended, Whos who and the rest of them are all
custom developed BSPs.
THe portal is connected to the production SAP HR R/3 server in the backend, and is live at the moment.
Our client has a corporate policy for the R/3 passowrd initialization after every 30 days as per their security audit policy, but this is causing problems to our EP users as once every 30 days the EP starts
prompting them the WAS 6.20 Authentication interface screen asking for their R/3 user id and password, as the start up screen of our EP on log on is a custom built BSP which shows the employees' personal information. The employee doesnt get any information that his passowrd
has expired, but goes on trying to enter the R/3 passowrd and user id many times and the system eventually locks the R/3 user id.
The password expiry policy cannot be changed as this applied to all R/3 user country wide. The other glitch is that only about 10% of the ESS users are actual R/3 WIN GUI users, so we're faced with a grave problem
of not having a SAP standard interface that can be provided to the users automatically whenever they log on to the portal and their R/3password should be prompted for change as and when it expires.
The portal userid and SAP R/3 Userid are not same. The Portal userid is PXXXXXX and sap userid is HRXXXXXX.
Is there any SAP Standard functionality that can be provided via EP
interface to the users to ease their issues.
