To redirect the Enterprise portal logon page

Hi all,

Due to a certain requirement from the client, I need to redirect the logon page, immediately after the user authentication in portal.

At present once the user key in the credentials, it is taken to the portal home page http://...../irj/portal.

Now because of the requirement, instead of the initial home page, i want to redirect user to another page.

e.g http://..../irj/KMdocument/.... . I would be storing the new page location in KM of portal.

Please suggest me a solution to redirect the initial start page in portal.

If you need more details, please let me know.

Thanks

Namit.

    Does this mean the user never gets to the regular portal navigation? In it's simplest form, just make the first visible iView on the first role a user sees be a URL iView that launches in _top. That will effectively hide the portal.

    Michael, the client requirement is that, the portal login page should contain the address bar and also the application menu bar for all users.

    For this I create a new HTML page, which i am planning to store in KM. Now immediately after the user authentication i need to redirect the user to this custom page instead of the portal start page.

    So how should I do this.

    thanks

      I am still a bit confused! When you say "portal login page", do you mean the page where the user enters their username and password? When you say the "application menu bar", do you mean the top level navigation? Can you just get the user to launch the portal by accessing your new HTML page as a KM document?

    Sorry for the previous reply, what I meant to say was:

    Portal Start Page, i.e the page that we get after entering username and password.

    In a normal IE page, on the top we get menu bar, application toolbar and address bar. Now in my scenario, the portal start page shouldnt contain any of these.

    So how can I get this to work. User shouldnt be able to view menu bar, application toolbar or address bar when they login into portal.

    Thanks

      Ahah, so you want to start a web address (the portal) with a window without those pieces, sometimes called kiosk mode. You do relize the user can often cause these to reappear?

      Anyway, you need to find a way to start the portal in such a window. SOmetimes this is donw by starting a static page that does a window.open() with some parameters. I'll let someone suggest the parameters!

      Hi chander,

      Could you help me to know, where should I change the windows features, like toolbar = 0 etc. as you have mentioned in your message???

      Also a little more explaintion on the issue for all:

      User would you the link http://someadd/irj/portal... he would get the normal login screen, where he would enter the username and password.Once he has entered his credentials, he needs to be redirected to another html page or if we can change the initial screen windows features it should be fine.

      Please help me on this...

      Thanks

    We were able to get the portal page without the IE toolbar. We designed a custom HTML page, which calls the URL http://<host><domain>/irj/portal as a new window and closing the old window, without the IE toolbar.

    This HTML page can be stored in portal server and under VA for start page me need to mentioned link to this HTML page.

    OR else we can also install the page in Reverse Proxy.

    Thanks
