    Lawson provides a method of replacing the Lawson Logo on the Portal Home page. We would also like to replace the center frame where 'Portal Common Tasks' and 'Useful Information' is displayed with a company logo. This would probably be a .jpeg file. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks -

    It only shows that page for Portal Administrators...so I'm curious--why?

    We are using custom roles. Some roles provide a search box, some do not, some allow users to change their preferences and subscriptions, some do not. On the custom roles the content changes depending upon what options you let the user have. Would like to be able to track down the xml that controls this content so that there will be one universal view.

    The "Portal Administration" page has nothing to do with roles; It is displayed if the "Portal Administrator" option in RM is set to YES.

    If you want to change the content/layout of the admin page, you would need to make your changes to home.htm & home.js, etc. in WEBDIR/lawson/portal/admin. Of course, be aware that you're modifying Lawson-delivered code, so you'll need to backup and re-integrate your customizations when you install patches...

    Thank you, will look into the files/directories mentioned. Note. In Portal, Portal Role Manger, add a new role, remove search, or deny access to changing portal content - then in RM - then referring to this .xml in the PortalPage field will change the views in the center Portal content area. User is not Portal Administrator. Thanks.

    Another alternative way to minimize the customization/alteration would be simply overwrite the default lawson logo with your company logo. The jpg or whatever filename still stay the same, the picture looks different. This would cut out alot of time going thru the jscript or whatever to alter the code.

    The draw back is you will have to resize the company logo into lawson's logo size.

    It's just a theory, i have not tried it yet. I think I will add that to my list of things to try.


    .... nvm, 3 months old post :/

    In $WEBDIR/lawson/portal/images there is a file called login.png. Modify this file to include your company's logo instead of Lawson's and you are set. Same re-integration/re-deployment on patch installations though.

    The home pages for the portal roles are located at $WEBDIR/lawson/portal. Create a new custom home page (e.g. ours is munsonhomepage.htm) and place it there with appropriate permissions. Then use Portal Administration, Role Manager, to add the custom home page to the appropriate portal roles, and clear Cache.

    I think it would help if you were more specific about what you want the customization to be and where you want it to appear.
    If it's a big message in the middle of their home pages, then I don't know any other way to do it than to create new homes pages or customize the existing home page for every portal role. Do you have that many unique portal roles?

    Thank you,

    We are having an upgrade and I would like a message when portal is launched (is it possible on the portal login page, before they login) to say something about the down time and their passwords changing?

    I'm only seeing two portal roles to be honest.

    Mick - Ah! Now that you have made it clear that you want this message BEFORE they log on, then the Portal Role home pages are not the solution, since those are seen after log on. I am not a SysAdmin, so I suggest you talk to your Lawson SysAdmin. The log on page must be rendered by WebSphere, so that is where I'd have your SysAdmin look to find out what object the customization needs to be made in.
