Setting Productive Passwords

Hello experts:

I'm working on setting passwords in some connected systems.  I'm seeing a couple of interesting things though:

1. Even though the repository definitons specify ABAP the Java password change is being executed (the systems are ECC and SRM if it matters) -- Any thoughts?

2. When I go to set the password I am setting PasswordChangeRequired to FALSE and I get the following message: 

putNextEntry failed storingSPML.SAPUSER.MPOLLICOVE

Exception from Modify Could not update user Productive Passwords can only be set via secure transport layers - What do I need to tell BASIS to do?

Hi Matt

I'm not sure - I've only ever done it with ABAP.  However, I seem to recall that the SPML implementation has an attribute 'passwordchangerequired' which is set to true by default on the To Custom job for setting the password.

If you set that to false it should work (logically - I make no guarantees)
