SU01 SAP GUI input history saves passwords, SAP security note 1365205

Description

    1. You use transaction SU01 to create a new initial password for a user. This password is displayed as plaintext in the password field. If you choose “Enter” in the password field, the system saves the password in the input history of SAP GUI. This is a security risk.
    2. You want to enter or generate downward-compatible passwords for service users and system users without changing the password rules in general (for example, the system parameter ‘login/password_downwards_compatibility’).
