As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.

New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

[SOLVED-KIND OF]Custom "failed logon" pages for WF 7.6.x

In previous version of WF (7.1.x) we had customized the MRE failed logon page to direct users to our help desk. This was in the mrbadlog.htm file in WebFOCUS71\ibi_html\workbnch directory. We are now moving to WF 7.6.9, and it appears that these files are no longer there. We had also customized a few of the other files in this same directory - only a few of them are still there.

Has anyone done similar customizations in 7.6.x that can tell me where I need to go to do our customizations now? I know Susannah had done a bit with customizing logon pages. any ideas?

I have had a similar challenge with the WF_SIGNOFF XML result page when logging a user off from WebFOCUS using WFServlet vs. CGI...
To date I have not been able to customize this behaviour and divisions position is that the XML result is the expected behaviour...
ditto...
The customer still wants a custom logoff confirmation page...
There are a couple of cases logged, mostly with a vague suggestion of modifying the applaunchFunc.js file, which is by the way not supported ;-)
Anyone with suggestions out in the field will also be appreciated... forgive me, I probably should have created a new topic as this is not related to a "failed logon"...

Darin,
A custom failed logon page can be put anywhere and you can redirect to that logon page with either of the following techniques:

1) By adding the following to:
WF Admin Console -> Configuration -> Custom Settings:
SIGNON_INCORRECT=http://www.google.com

(Substitute http://www.google.com for your custom page)

2) By customizing the MR Logon page and adding a parameter that passes that value:
<INPUT type="hidden" name="SIGNON_INCORRECT" value="http://www.google.com" />


The MR Signon page is controlled by the following:
\ibi\WebFOCUSxx\webapps\webfocusxx\login\ibi_login.jsp


Clinton Side-Kick,
What you want to do is very similar. Instead of using the parameter "SIGNON_INCORRECT", use the parameter "SIGNOFF_CORRECT" to control what page is loaded on logoff.

In both cases you will notice that the page that is redirected is the center frame. If you want to redirect the whole page, simply have the page redirected to on the center frame contain JavaScript to redirect the whole page.

e.g. The following should work.
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<script language="javascript">
top.location="http://www.google.com";
</script>
</HEAD>
<BODY>
</BODY>
<HTML>

Just to be sure to point you back to the relevant documentation.

Here are the following techsupport articles about these parameters:

Thanks for the response. I was aware that I could redirect to a completely separate page of my own making, and that may be the route I have to take. What I was hoping for was to just be able to ad a couple of lines of instruction to the default "failed logon" page like I have done in the 7.1.6 version but I cannot find the mrbadlog.htm file in the 7.6.9 installation - it appears that those may have all been move into jsp's. If so, which files need to be changed?


Regards,

Darin

The file you are looking for is:
\ibi\WebFOCUS76\webapps\webfocus76\login\mr\mr_broadcast.jsp

This is what is used to generate the error page.

That's what I could surmise, but looking at that file, I am still unable to determine how it is getting to a failed logon page or where the contents of that page come from.

Darin

That page results in the failed logon page, as well as other error messages that can be displayed.

What are you trying to do with the page?

Yeah, it results in the failed logon page, but it uses bean components and whatever else that I am not able to access. There's nothing you can edit there that changes anything. Instead of a short "invalid credentials message," I wanted to have a little bullet list of things for users to check (since we use a dual login and LDAP, a failed login can come from a few different problems) and a reference to our help desk if login problems can't be resolved.

I was hoping not to have to create an entirely separate page, but I was unable to determine how the failed logon page is generated so I could modify it, and in any case, the "Return to login link" returns to the wrong login page. So I copied the mrbadlog.htm page from our 7.1.6 installation and used the SIGNON_INCORRECT variable in custom settings to redirect failed logins to this page. Not the solution I was hoping for, but it works fine nonetheless.

Darin

I spent an hour trying to make SIGNOFF_INCORRECT work, when I realized it should be SIGNON_INCORRECT!
And that should be SIGNOFF_CORRECT, not SIGNON_CORRECT!

eeep, sorry Francis. Thanks for pointing that out.

One of the SPSes was wrong (removed it from the list of links), the rest were apparently my typos Music.

Apparently it was not a good day when I posted those.
