Former Member

Hi,

Is there a quick way to point the Portal to a temporary HTML default page?

https://server:port/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/com.sap.portal.navigation.portallauncher.default

I need to point the above link to an temp page. If you have any suggestion, that would be great.

Thanks

Create a webserver and assign the same port number.

Do you want a page to appear instead of the regular portal logon page? Will the Java engine be up, or is this so you can have a "Back shortly" type page? If the Java engine won't be up, then you'll need to have another web site to act as a proxy. You may want to look at the SAP Web Dispatcher (searchable from http://help.sap.com)

Yes the Java will be running, can i just replace the portal logon page? Can i replace it with an HTML page?

Thanks for your help.

Hi Jean

Try looking at the contents of <drive>:\usr\sap\<SID>\<instance_number>\j2ee\cluster\serverX\apps\sap.com\irj\servlet_jsp\irj\root\index.html. This is the first page that is accessed, so you could replace it with some static HTML - remember to back it up!

Yes I have modify this page with static HTML, but some of our users on the feild have these links as there favorite:

https://server:port/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/com.sap.portal.navigation.portallauncher.default

This will bypass the index.html

Hmm, a bit more tricky! I suppose you could replace the standard PAR file (com.sap.portal.navigation.portallauncher.par) with your own file that has a different default component.

(I don't think this would be considered best practice! Someone else may have a better idea...)

Thanks I will try that.

Hi Jean,

Why not replace the framework page of the desktop to a URL iView, which of course can point to wherever you want. Then, instead of getting the desktop -- navigation iViews and content area -- you get whatever the URL iView points to.

IMPORTANT: Just make sure to have an laternate desktop for administrators, so you can log in and change the portal and get the Portal Content area.

Hope this helps.

You also have to decide what you want to happen when people access portal components directly. (http://portal:port/isr/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/mypar.component) Are these meant to be disallowed as well? You almost need to have a new irj servlet!

I finally created an IIS server and gave it the port 50003, with IIS there is a redirect and it work fine.

Thanks for all your help.
