I have sometimes found myself in a situation where I have left my keys in the house and locked my self out. If you find our self in the same situation , then hopefully you have a relative/friend with a key who can save you and let you in your own house.

Now wouldn’t the world be a better place ( I have had a lot of arguments with this one!) if I knew how to pick locks and get into the house.

Scenario Background 

I was in a situation where I was conducting a training for EP200 on SAP EnterprisePortal 6.0. One of my students now accidently removed the Login Module  from the SAPJ2EE Engine Application in the Security Provider through the Visual Administrator!

Problem Faced:

No one could log into the Portal at all. We could not even login to the Visual Administrator to revert these changes!  Now the training was stuck and was in the danger of being delayed or even cancelled until the restore was done.

Solution: [ Thanks to Oliver]
1. Login to the Configtool
2. Navigate to the Configuration Mode
3. Navigate to the following path : Security > authentication > UME User Store > 0 > classname
4. Enter the following value here :
        ” com.sap.engine.services.security.server.jaas.BasicPasswordLoginModule”
5. Navigate to the following path : Security > configurations > ticket > security > authentication > UME User Store > 0 > classname
6. Enter the following value here : 
                 ” com.sap.engine.services.security.server.jaas.BasicPasswordLoginModule”
7. Save the config and Apply.
8. Exit the configtool and restart the J2EE Engine.
9. Et Voila! you can now use the basic username password to enter the portal and Visual Admin.

Note: SAP Logon Ticket Module will not work right now and you will have to set it up in the Visual Admin.

Update for Netweaver Portal 7.0
Values mentioned for classname node point have changed to : “BasicPasswordLoginModule

UPDATE:: Good News! There is now an SAP howto guide for this topic which also caters to the CE environment. You can access this link :

      Hi Dharmendra,

      The “Basic password” configuration will enable the simple username and password authentication for your pre-existing users. So you can use your old username and password. This configuration does not change them in anyway.
