SAP NetWeaver is a cross-application platform that allows users to utilize web-services and create applications to meet their IT needs. Using different passwords in Active Directory (AD) and SAP NetWeaver increases the chance that users will forget their passwords. This phenomenon, called password fatigue, causes password-related tickets to skyrocket, eats up your IT admins' time, and negatively affects user productivity.
The effective solution is to deploy an AD password synchronization tool that applies any changes to AD passwords to the passwords of connected cloud-based and on-premises applications. ADSelfService Plus is an AD password synchronization solution that provides real-time password sync for SAP NetWeaver—as well as several other on-premises and cloud applications—to help users deal with password fatigue in a secure way.
ADSelfService Plus' password synchronizer ensures that any changes to AD passwords are automatically synchronized to SAP NetWeaver in real time. The Password Sync Agent synchronizes to SAP NetWeaver any password changes made via the native Windows interface (Ctrl+Alt+Del screen) or password resets via the ADUC console. After a change, this agent captures the new AD password, encrypts it, and transmits it for synchronization. Admins can also choose to selectively synchronize users' passwords based on OU and group memberships.
With real-time password synchronization, users will only have to remember one password to access all their connected applications. So it goes without saying that admins need to make sure this one password is strong by enforcing password policies. But what about when users want to reset only their SAP NetWeaver password? Below, we'll talk more in detail about password policies, resetting SAP NetWeaver passwords, and how ADSelfService Plus can help you overcome these challenges.
When a SAP NetWeaver password is reset, ADSelfService Plus ensures that the user complies with the AD password policy guidelines. Alternatively, you can create custom password policies depending upon your organization’s security stance, enforce these policies for all applications, as well as display them on the reset and change password pages to make sure that users know what requirements need to be fulfilled.
