3228744 - [Onboarding] FAQs on PFS User credentials expiry time


We would like to know when the PFS User credentials would be expired? 


SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding


  1. Since the S-User password usually expires within 6 months time. Does this mean that the password expires on the same date as 6 months later or does it expire 180 days later? 
  2. What time of the date does the password expire? (At 0:00 UTC? or At 0:00 in local time?)
  3. When does "the 6 months" start from the time of password reset? Is it when I change the S-ID Password of the S-user or when I set S-ID Password in PFS?
