First Steps in User ManagementLocate this document in the navigation structure


You have started the AS Java.


After installation you need to add a few users so you can work with SAP NetWeaver Application Server (AS) Java.


Do not use the default administrator user to do all your configuration. For auditing purposes it is always better to use accounts associated with specific users.

You should also create a second default administrator in case your other administrator users get locked out. It is true that you can also activate the emergency user SAP* in a case like this. However, to activate SAP* you must restart the AS Java.


  1. Start identity management.
