Customizing IAG user authentication pages

Updated: February 10, 2010

Applies To: Intelligent Application Gateway (IAG)

You can customize content and graphics in general Whale Communications Intelligent Application Gateway (IAG) 2007 user interaction pages, such as login and logout pages. Customization settings include the following:

  • Visual and standard text attributes. Modifications affect all of the relevant parameters in the pages. You cannot assign different parameters to each page in the group. For example, if you change the logo graphic and text, the change is applied uniformly on all pages. For portal trunks, changes also apply to the System Information window if it is enabled to appear in the portal.

  • Style sheets that affect styles such as fonts and colors. Modifying style sheets requires a working knowledge of cascading style sheets.

The files located in the \Whale-Com\e-Gap\Von\InternalSite folder affect changes you make to these pages. The following table summarizes the folders located under the InternalSite folder and their uses.

Modifying user authentication pages

Modify pages as follows.

To customize user authentication pages

  1. Either open the relevant sample .inc file (located in the \Whale-Com\e-Gap\Von\InternalSite\samples folder), or create a new .inc file.

  2. Customize files and parameters by modifying the relevant .inc file. Files are described in the section "Customizable files and parameters".

  3. Save customized.inc files in the relevant CustomUpdate folders.

Notes

  • If you create your own files, ensure you use the same parameter names as those used in the supplied .inc files. If names are not identical, definitions may not be effective.

  • When you modify a graphic (.gif) file, the name of the file must correlate with the name defined in the relevant .inc file. Graphics for the Submit, Reset, and Go buttons are defined in the customDefault.inc file. The logo is defined in the logo.inc file. Change the path of the .gif file in the relevant .inc file to point to the Images\CustomUpdate folder. Ensure that you make changes in the .inc files located in the inc\CustomUpdate folder.

The following are the customizable files and parameters.
