What is Dynamic and Static profile parameter in SAP


Basically there are 2 types of parameters :

 Static
 Dynamic
Static are the parameters those won't take effect immediately the value is set. Restart of
an sap system is required for them to take effect.

Dynamic are the parameters those will take effect immediately in the run time. Restart
of an sap system is not required for them to take effect.
Profile Parameters for Logon and Password (Login
Parameters)
Parameter Explanation
login/min_password_lng Defines the minimum length of the
password.
Default value: 3; permissible values: 3 – 8
login/min_password_digits Defines the minimum number of digits (0-
9) in passwords.
Default value: 0; permissible values: 0 – 8
Available as of SAP Web AS 6.10
login/min_password_letters Defines the minimum number of letters (A-
Z) in passwords.
Default value: 0; permissible values: 0 – 8
Available as of SAP Web AS 6.10
login/min_password_specials Defines the minimum number of special
characters in the password Permissible
special characters are $%&/()=?'`*+~#-
_.,;:{[]}\<>│ and space
Default value: 0; permissible values: 0 – 8
Available as of SAP Web AS 6.10
login/password_charset This parameter defines the characters of
which a password can consist.
Permissible values:
● 0 (restrictive): The password can only
consist of digits, letters, and the following
(ASCII) special characters :!"@
$%&/()=?'`*+~#-_.,;:{[]}\<>| and space
● 1 (backward compatible, default
value): The password can consist of any
characters including national special
characters (such as ä, ç, ß from ISO Latin-
1, 8859-1). However, all characters that are
not contained in the set above (for value
= 0) are mapped to the same special
character, and the system therefore does
not differentiate between them.
● 2 (not backward compatible): The
password can consist of any characters. It is
converted internally into the Unicode
format UTF-8. If your system does not
support Unicode, you may not be able to
enter all characters on the logon screen.
This restriction is limited by the code page
specified by the system language.
With login/password_charset = 2,
passwords are stored in a format that
systems with older kernels cannot interpret.
You must therefore only set the profile
parameter to the value 2 after you have
ensured that all systems involved support
the new password coding.
Available in the standard system as of SAP
Web AS 6.40.
