Custom Apps Overview

To use the generic user-password application template, you must be able to write or modify a simple JavaScript script.

How to use the generic user-password template (an overview):

  1. Discover the login URL where the user-password web application accepts authentication requests and the names of the form data fields used to accept user name and password. Do this using POST analysis in a web browser (described later).
  2. Add “Generic User-Password” to the application list in the Admin Portal and open its entry to configure the template.
  3. Use the general user-password application template to configure the basics of a new user-password application profile: application name, an icon, the login URL for authentication, a way to determine the user name, and so on.
  4. Write or modify an advanced script in JavaScript that specifies form data field names for the web application and assigns user name and password values to the appropriate fields.
  5. Specify roles that have access to the custom user-password application.
  6. Save the new custom user-password application profile so that it appears with its new name in Admin Portal’s application list.
