Multiple Login Screens for EP6

EP6 SP2, patch 4

Does anyone know if it is possible to create separate login screens connecting to the same portal environment?

I have customized the main login screen already, but would like to create another custom login screen that would be reached via a different URL.

Is it possible to create a new login application that could either be deployed on portal or a standalone app that would login to portal?

We need to provide access to different business units, with different login screens and look and feel, but accessing the same portal.

Thanks for your help

    It is perhaps possible to add the HTTP GET parameter

    j_authscheme=<name of your authentication scheme>

    when you call the login component in order to get another authscheme

    So what you need to do is

    1. In the authscheme define one authscheme for each login type. Each one with a different front logon target (UI)

    2. For the other urls(those not using the standard authscheme), do a redirect to

    http://ticker.statoil.no/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/com.sap.portal.navigation.portallauncher.default?j_authscheme= of authscheme>

    let me know if this works.

    I only had to provide two different logon pages, so I modified the com.sap.portal.runtime.logon (a copy of) to check the URL and then render different umLogonTopArea.txt and umLogonBotArea.txt code. This works fine, but I don't know how easy it would be with many different variations.

    Reza,

    EP Security Guide has an example on how to create a new login component to logon anonymous user. This approach could be used to create different login screens also...

    HTH,

    To my understanding if you log-out you should be forwarded back to the frontend target of the authentication scheme you have specified (using a POST).

    Just created a double topic on that, hadn't noticed this one...

    It doesn't work for me either, i get forwarded back to the standard page and it seems to ommit my frontend target parameter in the new authscheme definition.
