In a few months, SAP Community will switch to SAP Universal ID as the only option to login to the site.

What is SAP Universal ID?

SAP Universal ID provides a single, life-long access point to SAP systems.It allows you to link your existing SAP legacy accounts (S/P users) under a single profile and take control of your personal SAP identity. With SAP Universal ID, you maintain one account, even if you change roles or employers.

It is also important to know that you will no longer have access to your S/P-user account(s) and associated content and badges once SAP Community makes this switch so do not wait to create your SAP Universal ID.

Important information for S-users

If you are an S-user, please note S-user accounts are set to expire since SAP Universal ID will be THE default authentication method of the future when logging into SAP sites and platforms. Therefore,

  • If you are an S-user with one account: go ahead and create your SAP Universal ID now so you won’t lose the content and history associated with your current profile.
  • If you are an S-user with multiple accounts: create your SAP Universal ID, link your S-user accounts as part of the setup process or via the SAP Universal ID Account Manager, and use the Account Consolidation tool to merge your accounts (see previous section).

Please take a look at the following blog on SAP Community "Happy Anniversary, SAP Community! Let's Merge Those Accounts!" for detailed instructions and information!

Creating an SAP Universal ID is a "Three step Process" that is expected to take no more than a few minutes. Please access the following  page "SAP Universal ID - one identity for life!" for details regarding these steps.
