Use

To use SAP MI you require the following passwords, depending on your configuration:

      A local password for logging onto the client (SAP MI Client Component)

Note

If the bypass option is activated for the device, you do not have to give the local logon password. Your logon onto the operating system acts as sufficient authentication for the use of SAP MI.

      A synchronization password for logging onto the server (SAP MI Server Component) (password for the SAP Web AS)

Depending on the configuration, you must enter the synchronization password for each synchronization (default), once per logon, or never.

Note

The synchronization password may technically correspond to the local logon password. In this case, you never have to enter the synchronization password. This is, however, only possible if the bypass option for the logon password has not been activated.

You can change the local logon password and (depending on the type of client) the synchronization password on the mobile device.

If you have forgotten the local logon password, you can reset it.

Prerequisites

      To reset the local logon password and to change the synchronization password you must have a connection to the server.

      The option to reset the local logon password must be activated in the mobile device configuration.

Changing the Local Logon Password

Note

Use this procedure if you only want to change the local logon password or if the synchronization password technically corresponds to the local logon password.

...

       1.      Start the SAP MI on the mobile device.

       2.      On the logon screen, choose Change Password.

Alternatively you can choose Manage Passwords after the logon. In this case, activate the option Change Logon Password.

       3.      Enter the old password and then enter the new password twice.

       4.      If the local logon password corresponds to the synchronization password, you should also change the synchronization password. If you do not so this, you cannot synchronize. Activate the corresponding option. This is only possible if you have a connection to the server.

Caution

If you are using an additional mobile device, also change the local logon password there before synchronizing with this mobile device. In this case, the synchronization password on the server need not be changed. You should, therefore, deactivate the corresponding option.

       5.      Save your entries.

Resetting the Local Logon Password

...

Note

You can only reset the local password if you have a separate synchronization password.

       1.      Start the SAP MI on the mobile device.

       2.      On the logon screen, choose Reset Password.

The Logon to Server screen appears.

       3.      Verify your identity with the synchronization password on the server.

The Reset Logon Password screen appears.

       4.      Enter the name of the user and the new password twice.

       5.      Save your entries.

Changing the Synchronization Password

Note

Use this procedure if you have a separate synchronization password that you enter once or every time during synchronization.

...

       1.      Start SAP MI on the mobile device and log on.

       2.      After the logon choose Manage Passwords.

Alternatively you can change the synchronization password if you need to enter it for a synchronization.

       3.      Activate the option Change Synchronization Password.

Note

If needed, you can also change the local logon password here. In this case, activate the option Change Logon Password.

       4.      Enter the old password and then enter the new password twice.

       5.      Save your entries.
