SAP ID service manages customers S-User. Currently SAP ID service cases gets opened wrongly in BC-IAM-IDS and also gets transferred from other components in the BC-IAM-IDS component. Therefore, to address this scenario and help our customers to address them to the fast resolution, we have created the following blog to provide the correct steps to follow.


Any inquiries related to S-users, P-Users, T-user or cloud users. For example:

  • The customer has question/query/update request for their S-user and P-User for SAP ID Service (IDS) and there is a need to know the right area who supports these issues

  • Multi-factor authentication questions

  • Did not receive password reset email

  • Trouble resetting password

  • Disable/deactivate Two-Factor Authentication / TFA / 2FA / MFA for a user

Confirm your scenario:

  • Cloud Portal (

  • SAP ID Service (

  • Custom IAS tenant ( - except ycloud).


Note: SAP ID Service and custom IAS tenant are not the same.

  • Custom IAS tenant ( - except ycloud): If you want to have subaccount members from your custom user base and use custom security configuration (such as two-factor user authentication, or corporate user store, for example), you can switch to a custom Identity Authentication tenant as a platform identity provider
