By | July 29, 2021

Sage ERP without appropriate protection levels in place would be the worst-case scenario, since the whole company would be at risk if all confidential information is leaked, or if information cannot be retrieved in the worst-case scenario.

The list of endpoints user can connect to define at the group level. When a group grants access to an endpoint, any member of the group can have access to the endpoint.

By default, the connection to a Sage X3 endpoint is performed with a Sage X3 user login equal to the user’s default account. If the Sage X3 user login is different from the endpoint’s default account, you can change it in this array.

In the majority of instances, people keep their easy passwords, which put them at risk of getting their accounts compromised. Sage X3 V12 implements a robust collection of password policies that ensures the organization’s security.

In Sage X3, with the help of following steps user can change or reset the user password when user login first time to Sage X3 after performing below given steps. This process is generally use for security purpose so that user can set their new password by themselves.

Navigate To: Administration > Administration > Users

  1. Select a user and click on the edit button from actions.
  2. Check the require password change checkbox as shown in below figure.
  3. Save the record.

This field is displayed only when either Standard or DB authentication is selected. When this check box is selected for a user account and if that user is trying to login the Sage X3, the user is redirected to another page after login to enter and confirm the new password before access to the application is granted.

Now logout from the Sage X3, and try to login with the same user credentials.

Now, enter a username and old password in the respective fields and click on the Sign In button. Once user click on Sign in button it will ask to reset a new password for that particular user, please refer the below figure.

Here user can enter a new password in both the fields i.e., new password and retype new password fields. Then click on the “Set new password” button, this will allow user to automatically login into the Sage X3 by resetting the new password.

Note:  The Reset password option will be occurring only one time. This is how after doing above process user can reset the password by their own. Once user will reset or change the new password the user will be no longer able to reset the password again. This is only one time setting which sage X3 allows.

With the help of this setting user can change or reset the password of Sage X3.
