Log into SAP with your NetID Password & SAP Business Client
Great news! Starting today, when you log into the SAP Portal, use your regular NetID password. That’s right! Over the weekend, we upgraded SAP and made this awesome and convenient update. Use the same password that you use to log into BobcatMail, the Online Toolkit, TRACS, your work computer, and many other online services.
If your Windows computer previously had SAP GUI installed, we removed it and replaced it with the new SAP Business Client. Going forward, you’ll need to use this new version, as SAP GUI no longer works. If you don’t see the SAP Business Client on your Texas State-owned Windows computer, go to Software Center and install it from there.

Routine Maintenance Schedule
The SAP system may be unavailable from midnight Saturday to noon on Sunday for weekly maintenance. Business areas are asked to coordinate one week in advance if system availability is required during this regularly scheduled maintenance time.
Remember to Think Before You Click!
Helpful tips to securely access the SAP Portal:
- Recognize the SAP Portal web address: https://ibis.sap.txstate.edu/irj/portal
- Exercise caution when clicking SAP Portal links in e-mails. When in doubt, access the SAP Portal via the Texas State home page, located under more tools.
- Look for the color green in the web address. The SAP team has enabled a security feature that will display the color green when you've reached the proper SAP login page.
