One of UAG’s features is the ability to change a user’s password. To do so, the user needs to click on the Credentials Management page on the portal, and then click on Change Password:
Some customers asked us how to add a link to this page directly on the portal, instead of the portal bar. This has the advantage of the ability to add text to the icon, making it more visible to users. To do so, you can simply create a dummy app with a static link to the page. To do so, follow these steps:
1. On the trunk’s main page, click Add
2. From the application list’s Web group, select Other Web App(Portal Hostname)
3. Type the application name, as you would want it to appear on the portal. For example “Credentials Management”
4. Type some application type. It can be anything, as it won’t be used in any configuration.
5. In step 3, select configure an application server and click next
6. In step 4, type a name of some internal server. It will not be used in any way, and can be anything, but it’s advisable to use a real name of one of your internal server. If you don’t, the activation will take longer as UAG tries to resolve a non-existing name.
7. In step 5, leave SSO disabled
8. In step 6, change the application URL to
***Note that <TRUNK> means your trunk name. For example, Portal1
9. Finish the wizard and activate the configuration.
So, the action is to replace
var alllinks = document.links;
document.location = alllinks.href;
This is a rather simple custom SRA file. The SRA needs to take action on the URL .*CredentialsSettings.asp.*, with application type “InternalSite”. This is the format:
If you are copying the above from the blog, make sure that there are no excessive line breaks (especially in the long Base64 string!) and that there are no excess spaces before or after the triangular brackets < and >.
To make this work, place the file in the trunk’s custom update folder:
<UAG Folder>\von\conf\websites\<your trunk>\conf\CustomUpdate
Once the file is there, activate the configuration. Now, when a user opens the credentials management page, whether from the portal toolbar or from a published link, it would instantly jump to the Change Password page. The downside to this, though, is that this automatic skipping means that the other link on that page (Add Credentials) becomes unusable. This should not bother many, but still worth nothing.
