SAP SuccessFactors What's New Viewer

Require Password Reset on Next Login for Users Created and Updated Through API

When a new user is created or an existing user's password is updated by others through API, the user is required to reset the password when they log into SAP SuccessFactors next time.

Password reset is required for the following users:
  • All new users created through the User entity in SFAPI or OData API

  • Existing users whose passwords have been updated through the User entity in SFAPI or OData API

We made this enhancement to improve password safety.

What's Changed

In the current version, password reset is required for new users created and for existing users whose passwords are updated by others through the User API.

In the previous version, password reset wasn't required for such users by default. However, customers could request SAP Cloud Support to force password reset for their companies.
