Profile Parameters for Logon and Password

(Login Parameters)
The following table presents the profile parameters with which you can set password and logon
rules. These profile parameters define the minimum requirements for passwords. However, you
cannot set any upper limits for password rules. For example, users can use any number of special
characters in their passwords, as long as they follow the other password rules. More information
about the procedure for changing profile parameters: Changing and Switching Profile
Parameters.

Note

To make the parameters globally effective in an ABAP System (system profile parameters), set
them in the default system profile DEFAULT.PFL. However, to make them instance-specific, set
the parameters in the profiles of the system application servers.

To display the parameter documentation, in the profile parameter maintenance tool (transaction
RZ11), enter the parameter name and choose Display. On the next screen, choose the
Documentation button.
