I'm wanting to make changes to the Defender.thtml page only and I've read up on how to do it. I need to download the sample.zip file and make my changes and upload again. However, I'm wanting to keep the other pages as they currently are that have been created within the IVE standard page configuration. It is only the Defender page I want to modify.
By using the sample.zip file it overwrites everything else that has been configured on the standard sign-in pages. Is there any way of just modifying one file? Alternatively, can I export one of my existing sign-in pages, make the change and upload without using the sample files?
If not, what is the best way to try to configure my pages the way they currently are configured, using the sample files? I am finding it difficult to find all the parts I need to change and I'm no web developer.
Yes it can be done, go to your Sign-in pages. You can find your current template. Download it, unzip Do modifications. zip it and load it up
Unless somethings changed in newer releases I think you will need to modify all the required pages in the custom page zip (check the reference guide to work out which ones you need to change).
Having said this it is fairly straightforward to give the pages the same look as a standard page. The template files use parameters for the various text which can easily be set at the top of the file. For example to set the Portal name just add the following near the top of the file (I put them before the <html> tag)
<% SET portal = 'Your text' %>
Most of the parameters have a similar name to that on the standard page config so with a little searching you can work them out and their all documented in the CSP guide.
Once you've set them for one page you can just copy and paste them into the others.
You then just need to tweak the logo and background colour.
Of course what would be really cool would be if in a future release Juniper set it up so you could set the parameters on the in the Custom Sign In page config on the box or even tell it to use the values from a standard sign in page. This would make small changes to the sign in pages like you want to do a lot easier.
Jan, I don't see the options you're talking about to download a zip file of my current sign-in page. Remember it is a standard page, not a custom one. If you can do it, please step it through for me but from what I can see you are not correct. I'm running R6.3R5.
I had a feeling I'd have to modify the sample.zip files. I just had great difficulty finding what to change, even going through the user guide. I found what I need to change in the Defender.thtml file, but I need to fix up the initial login page. Basically on the login screen I have to change the wording of username, password, additional password (ACE PIN) and Realm selection, and I have comments on the right hand side. Can you point me in the right direction on what files/parameters I need to change for these 5 items?
the default page is the same as the custom page. So if you download a custom page and make a new Sign-in page with that downloaded file you have a standard sign-in page.
If it works, you can make your changes to the custom page
