Customizing the OpenSSO Enterprise Login and Logout Pages

ProcedureTo Customize the OpenSSO Enterprise Login and Logout Pages

  1. Make sure that your JAVA_HOME environment variable points to JDK 1.5 or later.

  2. Download and unzip, as described in Downloading OpenSSO Enterprise.

  3. Create a new staging directory and extract the files from opensso.war in this staging directory. For example:

    # mkdir customwar
    # cd customwar
    # jar xvf zip-root/opensso/deployable-war/opensso.war

    where zip-root is where you unzipped

  4. Customize the pages as required for your deployment by editing the JSP and XML files required by your deployment. For example:


    Console login page 


    Console logout page 


    Data store authentication page 


    LDAP authentication page 

    where customwar is where you extracted the files from opensso.war.

  5. Generate a new WAR file with the customized files. For example:

    # cd customwar
    # jar uvf OpenSSOCustom.war *
  6. Deploy the new customized war file, as described in Deploying the OpenSSO Enterprise WAR File.
