Setting up password expiration time in SAP NetWeaver ABAP stack

Once new SAP user is created in SAP NetWeaver ABAP stack and password is generated it can get its expiration time. This is supposed to be a temporary password type of thing as it is expected that user will change it soon. Expiration time may vary as it governs by SAP instance parameter. Name of the instance parameter is:


The password expiration time or validity period of passwords is given in days. There may be following values specified in parameter. If the value is 0 it means user is not forced to change the password. If there is any value different from 0 it means the number of days after which users must change the password. Maximum permitted value is 1000 days.

The value of the parameter can be maintained in t-code RZ11.
