You can change your password whenever you log on to the SAP System. For security reasons, however, your system administrator may require that you change your password at regular intervals, for example, every 30 days. In this case, you will receive a message from the SAP System when it is time to change your password.
You can only change your password from the logon screen.
To check the rules for creating a new password, seePasswords.
In the steps below, you are instructed to press theTAB key after you enter data in a field. In the standard system, when you press the TAB key, the cursor moves to the beginning of the next field. However, you do not have to press the TAB key if you enter the maximum number of characters possible in a field. For example, the maximum number of characters that you can enter in the Client field is three. If you enter 001 in the Client field, the cursor automatically moves to the beginning of the next field.
For more information about entering data, seeEntering Data in Fields.
For more details, seeLogging On.
The new password dialog box appears, as shown here.
If you do not see this dialog box, check the status bar for a system message. You may have entered an incorrect client number, password, user ID, or language key. If this is the case, repeat steps 1 through 5.
As you type the new password, the asterisks remain in the field and only the cursor moves. As a security measure, the system does not display what you type.
Press theTAB key to move the cursor to the Repeat password field.
Memorize your password. You cannot log on to the SAP System without it. If you forget your password, contact your system administrator.
In the standard SAP System, the Copyright dialog box appears.
If a different dialog box appears, you have either made a mistake entering your new password, or it is not a valid password. The dialog box contains a message describing the mistake. In this case:
The new password dialog box reappears.
The copyright notice disappears.
If there are systemwide messages, they appear. After you have read the messages, choose Continue in the dialog box to close it.
In the standard system, the SAP Easy Access initial screen appears.
