Security Policy - password must be different from previews passwords

0 Kudos

Is it possible to determine that the user <u>must</u>

have his or her passwords <u>different from the last N


I couldn't find it on the following documentation:

Besides, my EP is pointing to an ABAP system (SRM).

<u>Where</u> do I have to configure it? Wich UME? In my

EP, in my SRM or in both?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

I think the UME can support whatever your actual datastore can support. If your ABAP user store can support this then the portal will support this. Be aware, you may have problems with the pass through of error messages.

As of NetWeaver 2004s (ABAP release 7.0) it is possible to configure the size of the password history, see:

In previous releases the size of the password history is hard-coded (5 entries).

The <a href="">SAP note 862989</a> provides an overview on the new password features of ABAP 7.0 systems.
