Want to Learn more about – How to manage S-User IDs and Certification!
Thank you for taking the time to read this blogpost!
We hope it will clear up any doubts you have about S-User IDs and SAP Certification.
SAP provides many different types of User IDs, you can find a recent blog post dedicated to this topic SAP User IDs? What’s the Difference? Find out more here…
Now, we would like to provide you with more information on S-User ID’s that are used for Certification purposes.
Firstly, what is an S-User ID?
It is a unique identifier that allows you to login to your SAP ONE Support Launchpad to report an incident, download software, generate license keys, configure connections, and more. Your S-User ID contains the letter ‘S’ followed by numbers (e.g. S0xxxxxxxxx).
Why has my S-User ID used for my Certification now expired?
S-User ID’s belong to companies, not individuals. Independent S-User ID’s are no longer created.
Certification S-User ID’s that are not associated with any SAP customer or Partner company are no longer active/ valid and cannot be renewed or extended.
There is no Certification ID anymore, since badges are issued. Essentially, the Certification is the Contact Person ID/Learner ID that holds the certificate.
If you are associated with SAP Customer or Partner you may get an S-User ID from your company, to access SAP Support sites.
Currently, S-User ID’s are created by the Super Administrator of the SAP Customer or Partner company that one is employed with.
With S-User Lifetime, S-User IDs associated with companies now have an “expiry date” which Super Administrators can easily extend.
