To customize the logon page of Infoview, you need to:

  1. Locate the web.xml file under the following directory:

    Linux/Unix: <BO_install_directory>\CommonReporting3\bobje\Tomcat6\webapps\InfoViewApp\WEB-INF
    windows: <BO_install_directory>\CommonReporting3\Tomcat6\webapps\InfoViewApp\WEB-INF

    Note: Tomcat version may vary depending on your CABI version.

  2. To show the authentication dropdown list so users can change the authentication type, set the authentication.visible parameter to true:

     [...]   <!-- Choose whether to let the user change the authentication type -->   <!-- If it isn't shown the default authentication type from above will be used -->   <context-param>     <param-name>authentication.visible</param-name>     <param-value>true</param-value>   </context-param>[...]

  3. Save this file and restart Apache Tomcat on Business Objects machine.
