Creation of a user on the SAP system involves running the Create User and Change Password functions in a sequence. This sequence makes three RFC calls to the SAP system. The Create User RFC and Change Password RFC functions commit the transaction explicitly at the end of the call. The commit is enforced by the SAP architecture. This architecture constraint of SAP makes it infeasible to conduct transactions such as Create User and Change Password.
When a user is created, the password specified is not allocated to the user. Later, the SAP system requires the user to specify the password again, which is assigned to the user at this stage. To prevent the occurrence of this event, when a new user is created, the user is assigned a dummy password and after user creation the Change Password function is called automatically. The password changes from the dummy password to the one entered by the user in the SAP User form in Oracle Identity Manager. This process is transparent to the user.
In SAP 4.7 or later, you cannot enter non-English letters in the E-mail Address field.
