    What we would like to do is make modifications to the ESS pages particularly around the benefit enrollment screens. I'm familiar with the portal ESS pages and directory structure and comfortable with modifying HTML and Javascript. But what I'm trying to accomplish is to have all of the pages live in \lawson\custom\ and have the \xhrnet and \xbnnet folders and pages remain exactly as they are delivered by Infor. My problem is that it seems everything is highly integrated to those delivered xhrnet and xbnnet folders. It doesn't seem to be a simple matter of copying the files out to a custom directory and linking to it.

     

    I'm really hoping that there is a setting buried in a config file that I'm simply overlooking.

     

    Thank you.

    I make a copy of the as-delivered xhrnet & xbnnet folders as backup (i.e. xhrnet-standard-ccyymmdd), then make the modifications directly in xhrnet/xbnnet. I also make a copy of each of the modified versions into a third folder (i.e. xhrnet-custom-ccyymmdd). Then create a batch file for either removing customizations or reapplying them by copying between the folders. Not ideal, obviously, but it works. Always restore back to the standard version before applying ESS/MSS updates, and you can compare between the old/new standard version in order to reapply the customizations.
    Thanks for using the LawsonGuru.com forums!
