MPP Welcome Page

MPP Welcome Page

We are implementing HCM for an Internet service provider who wants to go public with (Virtual) Private Cloud offerings for enterprise customers. The customer wants to have a single URL/home page for the MPP regardless which organization the given consumer is belonging to.

Ideally, there would be a single/unified logon page, and based on the entered credentials the corresponding MPP/catalog of the correct consumer organization would be displayed.

As a first step into this direction, HCM may optionally support a "Welcome Page" before the logon page(s) to the various consumer organizations are displayed.

This welcome page would serve multiple purposes:

  • It would enable a single URL/entry point to any (consumer) organization.
  • It would support a drop-down list to select the consumer organization. Because this would publicly expose the whole list of consumer organizations without logon, this should be an optional feature.
  • It would provide an option to list the Terms & Conditions of using this web page and its services (possibly addressed by link).
  • It would (optionally) contain a cookie acceptance feature, which is a legal requirement for any public web offering in order to comply with the GDPR rules in the European Union since 2018-05. -- Applies only if the MPP uses cookies, of course.

Because all of this could easily be achieved with a single custom HTML page, it would possibly be good enough if the MPP web server supports the delivery of a single custom welcome page (stored on NFS) as part of its configuration.

Yes The idea is very good. We are also facing the same concerns from the customer wherever we deploy HCM.

Hello,

This single page would be perfect on my company use, because the user can accept term of services that we provide, we have a separate document and most users did not even read it.

 

I will add for this point : 

  • It would support a drop-down list to select the consumer organization. Because this would publicly expose the whole list of consumer organizations without logon, this should be an optional feature.

If sso is enabled, it can detect what tenants the user can access and only display the one he can access.

@Rodion Wentzek Just for reference, a NetIQ Access Manager instance can help providing this feature, but it sure would be nice to have it OOTB
