In the modern enterprise landscape, organizations require intelligent logon features to ensure users can access critical functionality within their SAP system and protect their logon process from potential security breaches or fraudulent passwords.
As a standalone tool in the SAP Graphical User Interface (GUI), SAP Logon enables users to view, access, configure, and manage one SAP system or multiple SAP systems from one place.
Read on to learn more about SAP Logon tools, how they improve access to data and business processes for end users, and where our team of SAP consultants can come in to help.
Understanding the SAP Logon Pad
SAP Logon, a locally installed program used to help users log on to an SAP system, connects an SAP system to the SAP GUI and improves connections with other enterprise systems through SAP GUI for Windows and SAP GUI for Java.
With the SAP Logon pad, users can access a comprehensive display of available SAP systems, automatically select the servers with the quickest response times, and add and remove items in the list of systems as needed.
User help capabilities of the SAP GUI Logon pad are context-sensitive, and all related documentation is displayed depending on the user’s current screen.
How to Use SAP Logon
Before beginning the login process, users must know the exact name of the system they’re logging into, the desired language for the login, and their individual client number, user ID, and password.
Here’s a closer look at the most critical steps in the SAP Logon procedure:
- Double-click to open the SAP Logon pad and select the required system from the list of available systems.
- Enter your client number in the Client field or accept a default client number in the existing field.
- Enter your User ID in the User field.
- Enter the initial password provided by SAP. After the first logon, replace the initial password with a personalized password that aligns with your company’s password length and format requirements.
- Select the display language for your SAP server and click Enter.
- Access the System Messages dialog box to view system-wide messages and click Choose to close the dialog box after reading the messages.
- Choose Next to continue.

How Can We Help?
While SAP provides in-built support services for issues with accessing the menu bar, logging into the system, and resetting passwords, it doesn’t offer support for more significant issues, like implementing new SAP systems or navigating more complex SAP Logon issues.
