How to change the password rule "The first 3 characters cannot be same"


I use ECC6.0 AS ABAP.

In Note 2467,

"The first 3 characters cannot be identical".

I want to allow users to set password first 3 characters same.

Can I change this password rule ?

I think that this is not really hitting the point.

Yasuo revealed the motivation for the intended policy modification (actually, it is most likely intended to bypass all password policy checks): he intends to synchronize passwords across different systems.

I can only repeat what I've written previously: that's the wrong approach.

If you want to achieve SSO then forget about passwords; use proper SSO mechanisms, instead.
