Changing Authschemes.xml file

Hi All,

I am working on Portal Logon page customization for Portal 7.4.

I downloaded the .war file for logon page customization and modified it as per requirement through NWDS by creating a Project.

Changes are done and they are reflected on logon screen as well. I followed this doc for the same: http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-27909 : (Kept the names of project created, alias, and provider as in the doc for now).

But now I also want to change the authscheme.xml file on server, so that any upgrades, don't overwrite my changes. Tried to change it by replacing the “com.sap.portal.runtime.logon” text/string in xml file with my ear project /application name which in this case was “tc~sec~ume~logon~uiEAR”.

But after these changes, the logon screen went blank, I mean on opening portal url, nothing comes up or it comes up with a runtime error.

However I was able to login into NWA.

For now I have reverted the changes, but any idea/pointers of what all needs to be changed in authscheme.xml.

Thanks,
Somya

    Hi Somya,

    Did you change the property "Alias of the aplication for customizing login pages (ume.logon.application.ui_resources_alias)" in NWA as mentioned in the document that you've referred.

    Regards,

    Hi Somya,
    Can you please mention which property you changed to tc~sec~ume~logon~uiEAR?

    In document Customizing Logon Page on Portal 7.3 it is not mentioned to change authschemes.xml.

      Hi Anurag,

      Yes, I did change the alias name in NWA to point to the new one.

      Hi Rajendra,

      As mentioned earlier, I replaced the “com.sap.portal.runtime.logon” text/string in authschemes.xml file with my ear project /application name which in this case was“tc~sec~ume~logon~uiEAR” and then under the Propertysheet properties, changed the value of login.authschemes.definition.file property with new xml file i created.

    Hi All,

    Any pointers for this issue?

    I basically want to know what changes are needed inside the authschemes.xml file w.r.t logon page customization?

    Is it just replaing “com.sap.portal.runtime.logon” string in the file with the EAR project name, which in my case is“tc~sec~ume~logon~uiEAR” ? Or, do we need any more changes?

    Thanks,

    Somya

      Thanks Marciano,

      So, you mean only NWA changes are enough for logon page customization and we do not need changes in Authschemes.xml file?

      Will it not cause overwriting of my changes in case of any upgrades. etc? Please confirm.

      Thanks,

      Somya
