SAP Portal Automatic Logon

Automatic logon is achieved via http header variables (HTTP POST).

  1. Append attribute j_user and j_password to irj/portal:


        Same format is used for URL Integration iView .

Once the link is executed in the browser, an automatic logon is achieved.

Always consider proper security while using, because password is stored in clear text. Alternatives might be: Automatic Logon via Single Sign On: Certificates, SAML, Kerberos Based Windows Authentication, or SAML.


This method is very convenient to get a quick access to different user roles via a script or spreadsheet, e.g. for test user in a non productive system.

Consider:Only use this method for uncritical users and in secure networks, – probably non productive. Check that SSL is used which provides a secure end to end encryption.

      Yes, it is working but as you said it is not secure to use like that. If it is personal PC we can do it like that.

      I agree Sudhir and thanks for linking! I will add a comment to use this method only in secure networks and only for test users. It´s very convinient to switch between different test users and roles using this method very quickly. 🙂
