SAP Universal ID – one identity for life!
SAP Universal ID provides a unified account across SAP sites that links all your existing company associations (S/P-user IDs) and allows you to switch between them as needed.
- Take control of your experience by owning your personal SAP identity
- Manage one account by linking all your existing accounts in one universal account
- Use it wherever you go, regardless of where you work
Once your account is set up, you can access the SAP Universal ID Account Manager, which is your single-entry point to view, update, and manage your personal information, account security settings, and associations to companies.

Explore the road map for SAP Universal ID
SAP Universal ID supports over 500 SAP sites, including SAP.com, SAP for Me, SAP Community, SAP ONE Support Launchpad, SAP Support Portal, SAP Learning Hub, and SAP Partner Portal.
The enablement of SAP Universal ID on SAP sites will happen in two phases:
Phase one – Conditional integration: You may use your S/P-user IDs or your SAP Universal ID to log in.
Phase two – Enhanced integration: Accessing a site with enhanced integration is only possible with your SAP Universal ID login credentials. S/P-user IDs login is no longer supported.
- Status: Targeted date to migrate all S/P-user ID accounts by the end of 2022
As sites begin to support enhanced SAP Universal ID integration, users will be required to migrate existing S/P-user IDs. All new S-users must be linked to an SAP Universal ID, as the S-user provides the authorization entitlement under the control of SAP Universal ID. Linked P-users will ensure continuity and content migration.
With enhanced integration, switching between S/P-user IDs is a simple process, available from the Account Selector, with no need to log out and log in.
Built-In Support is the first application to provide enhanced integration, and SAP.com will be the next site to be enabled.
Following our target migration date, there will be no stand-alone users and all accounts will be SAP Universal ID accounts at the beginning of 2023.
