Modifying Portal Logon Page

Hello *,

this is my fist post in SDN, so please excuse if this questions was still posted, but I couldn't find an answer

for this:

We wan to change the initial logon page in

We did all necessary changing within UME and all the other

stuff, so this is not the problem.

What we want is to change the ume.logon.branding_text

to print out on which portal instance you are, like

if you are on the DEV-Portal that you will see a text


"DEV - Development Enterprise Portal"

Thanks for your help.

    Hi Mike,

    This is what I did, it worked out quite well. It displays the text to notify the user which system they are logging into.

    Modify the umLogonPage.jsp in the logon par file by adding the following:

    function displaySystem(system) {


    document.write("<span style='font-size:10.0pt;font-family:Arial;color:#CC0000'>Please Note that you are logging into the </span>");


    document.write("<span style='font-size:12.0pt;font-family:Arial;color:#CC0000'>");




    document.write("<span style='font-size:10.0pt;font-family:Arial;color:#CC0000'> Portal Environment</span>");



    Then right after the "<table border="0" width="301" height="100" align="left" cellspacing="0" valign="top">" line in the logon form add this:

    <script language="JavaScript">

    if (location.hostname=="") {



    if (location.hostname=="") {




    Hope that helps.

      Hi Robin,

      thanks for your answer - this might probably solve the problem.

      But, do you have an idea how to get the J2EE-Engine Instance

      Name <b>via Java</b> <i>not via JScript</i>?

    Hello Mike!

    The branding text is a gif image.


    You will have to create an GIF image for each instance and put the image on the server. If you have already done so, this could be a caching Problem. Try CTRL+F5 for reloading the logon screen.

    Hope it helps,
