3199298 - Username No Longer Prefilled on Login UI - Platform


Username is no longer prefilled in login page even when passed as a parameter in login URL.

Reproducing the Issue

  • Enter SuccessFactors login URL including the "username" parameter.
  • The login page loads up without the username value prefilled.


This is expected behavior after 1H 2022 release.

Previously, if you logged in to the SAP SuccessFactors system using URL that had Username specified as a URL parameter, the system prefilled the Username field on the login page UI. Now, username value is not prefilled even if the parameter has been specified in the login URL.

This change was made as a security enhancement.


Post 1H 2022 release, Username can no longer be prefilled on the SuccessFactors login page by passing it as a URL parameter. It will always need to be manually entered on the UI by the end user.
