login/min_password_lng max value

Having recently set the below values we are experiencing problems when users place digits or specials at positions above 8. It appears that SAP does not check above character 8. Not at password change nor at login to SAP.

Profile Parameters Attributes for login/min_password_lng tells that minimum value is 3 and maximum value is 8. Does this really mean that anything above 8 is ignored?

This is quite a usability issue.

login/min_password_lng = 8

login/min_password_digits = 1

login/min_password_letters =1

login/min_password_specials = 1

Hi Vito,

no.

This parameter sets only the minimum password length. It has no influence on the verification of input values after the 8th character.

From 7.00 on, the password can be longer than 8 characters. So up to 6.40 the maximum value of this parameter is 8, as the password cannot be longer. From 7.00 on, the max-value for this parameter is 40.

If you are on 7.00 and any input after the 8th character is ignored when logging on, you have set the parameter login/password_downwards_compatibility accordingly to 3,4,or 5 (5 is the most common).
