IDM 4.5 Branding of login page


After a lot of searching I found the original login.css file under
tomact/work/Catalina/localhost/osp/osp.conf/css in my case.
Copied that to my own place and changed the icon.
Edited the cusom url for login css in configupdate

Now the Icon look good.

Under the Icon ther is a text that sys "NetIQ Identity Manager" in
bold.

1. is it possible to change that text?
2. If not, how can I change that to a smaller font?

Thanks
Joakim

    Hi Joakim,

    The supported way to rebrand OSP is to add a value to a parameter in
    configupdate to the custom css file you will use to perform the task.
    That is under the Advanced options of the Authentication tab and is
    named "URL to custom CSS file for login screen". Changing the files
    provided with the product directly will voids support on it.

    That css will be loaded last and overwrite information from prior
    ones baked into the product. As far as I know that custom css file has
    to be available to the browser on the same app server you have OSP
    deployed to.

    Using CSS selectors you can access that particular element and change
    its display property to none. In my 4.0.2A HPD system I placed the file
    example.css in my ROOT.war directory, so its URL is
    http://ip:port/example.css , stopped JBoss, ran configupdate and placed
    the path http://ip:port/example.css in the parameter mentioned above,
    hit OK, started JBoss then tested.

    Using F12 on Chrome and right-clicking then choosing "Inspect
    Element" found out the structure to reach that particular element and
    hid it with:

    form h2 { display: none; }

    There are probably other ways, just did what felt the easiest to
    answer the question. You can add text on the image being replaced along
    with the logo so that should cover basic branding needs.

    Cheers,

    -Fernando


  • Thanks for a very detailed answer.
    I did use configupdate to point at my edited file.
    Why I referenced the original file was just to use a copy of it as a
    working example.

    Greetings,
    This thread was about how to change the Login "page" that appears.
    This is controlled by mapping to a css file on the Authentication Tab in
    the configupdate utility.
    Please open a new thread for the specific area(s) that you are
    trying to change the appearance. The steps may all be different and
    therefore, it would be helpful to others in the future if there is a
    thread per.
