SAP Support Portal FAQs

Review answers to commonly asked questions about the SAP Support Portal as well as the recent transition from our previous portal to the newly redesigned portal. The SAP Support Portal is your one stop for all support and service related needs; access your software, request license keys, get technical support and find the documentation you need to run your business better.


  • To log on to the SAP Support Portal, click the Login link at the top of the page. Enter your User ID (S-number, P-number), your email address, or your user name in the top text box. Enter your password in the bottom text box. If you would like the site to remember you, check the Remember Me box. Finally, click the Log On button.

  • Forgot your password? - Click Forgot Password? in the login window. When the Forgot Your Password? window appears, enter your User ID, User Name or e-mail then click Send. You will receive an e-mail with a link that will ask you to reset your password.

    Note: If you have multiple User-IDs associated with the same e-mail address, do not enter the e-mail address as you will not be able to specify which User-ID you want to reset the password for. Enter the User ID or User Name instead.

  • Change your password — Changing your SAP Support Portal password regularly is a good habit to help keep your company's data that is hosted in the portal secure.

  • Browser Certificate (SAP Passport) — Log in to the SAP Support Portal without entering your S-user ID and password. For more information, see the Browser Certificate (SAP Passport) Help file.
  • How to log out - To log out, click the down arrow icon next to your name at the top of the page, then click Log out. The page will then refresh and you will see Welcome Guest instead of your name.

    If you have multiple S-Users and you want to log out from one and then log on with another, make sure that you close all browser windows then reopen your browser.



User Profile — Here you can view and maintain your profile, maintain your favorites, maintain your roles and update your contact details to ensure you are contacted at the right e-mail address and phone number.

Data, processes and communication flow in SAP Support Portal — This documentation provides background information about the main processes in the SAP Support Portal: Managing customer numbers, installations, systems, software & license keys, and users.

A company's super- or user-administrators can request any number of S-Users. This concept is extremely flexible and, together with the authorization concept, allows you to model different requirements and hierarchies. As a super- or user-administrator you can assign your colleagues any of your own authorizations. For security reasons SAP is not allowed to do this. For your own security, regularly delete inactive S-User IDs and S-User IDs of people who have left the company so that you can avoid unauthorized access and keep your user data up to date.

Access the User Management application

* Special authorizations required. If you need additional authorizations, contact your super administrator.

Transition to Redesigned Portal

Based on customer feedback, SAP redesigned the SAP Support portal to offer you an improved support experience with a streamlined user interface. The new SAP Support Portal is now simpler, easier to navigate, and also mobile-enabled, allowing you to easily access the portal from anywhere, at any time, and with any device.

The new portal is already available now. 

In addition to a new look and feel that better aligns with other SAP web sites, we've streamlined the portal by consolidating related content and retiring outdated content. We have two new primary navigation sections: My Support and Tools. Previous navigation entries; Knowledge Base & Incidents, Keys, Systems & Installations, Users & Authorizations and Software Downloads are now found under My Support along with other SAP ONE Support Launchpad information and applications. Tools is a growing area where you can find supportability tools offered by SAP. Our top task area has also increased from six tiles to ten – allowing us to provide you with quick access to more of your critical tasks. Finally, the new SAP Support Portal is mobile-enabled, whereas the old site didn't provide an optimal user experience on tablets and smartphones.

No. The SAP ONE Support Launchpad and the SAP Support Portal are independent web sites and as such the SAP ONE Support Launchpad will not be affected as part of the portal redesign. You will still be able to easily access it through the SAP Support Portal.

You are welcome to use the Contact Us function, which is located on every page of the SAP Support Portal, to report issues with the new SAP Support Portal.

Please contact us for any feedback or questions via the Contact Us form.
