Sap Logon password Length

Hi All,

In ECC6.0 when a user is setup there is a option which says password needs to be > 6. But there is no restriction on the max length .

We would like to restrict the password length to 8.

When initially user created basis sets it to 8 chars in length.

User can always click on new password and change password. When he does that and clicks on enter I wuld like to check the length of the new pwd and error a message if password > 8.

Could anyone help me in this as to how to go about it.

for logon screen there is only one user exit.. can i check it here? i do not know which is the table of structure the values are stored .

That's not the point. The length of the dynpro input field is also restricted - but since the password is entered "blindly" (the entire field is displayed with ********) the user will not receive any feedback on how many characters he has typed in.

Looks like - at least there is no instant solution respectively I'm not aware of any.
