    Customize OBIEE log in page display

    Yala
      Hello

      Do you guys know how I can change the OBIEE log in page?

      Below the log in fields, there is some copyright texts from Oracle, I want to change the copyright text and add more sentences, what would be the best way to do?

      Thank you

          Edit this file from
          OFM\Oracle_BI1\bifoundation\web\msgdb\messages\logoncontrolmessages.xml

          If this is not helping then
          \OFM\Oracle_BI1\bifoundation\web\msgdb\l_en\messages\utilmessages.xml

          Pls mark as correct else let me know ;)

            Thank you for the update

            Now below the select a language fields and above the copyright text, there shows the name of the product, typically it says: Oracle Business Intelligence 10.1.3.4.1 or 11g, as shown in this link:
            http://www.google.com/imgres?um=1&hl=en&sa=N&tbo=d&biw=1440&bih=799&tbm=isch&tbnid=mRfflVb5OLgpwM:&imgrefurl=http://knowledge.ciber.nl/weblog/%3Fp%3D132&docid=v4l2psBWhb6NxM&imgurl=http://knowledge.ciber.nl/weblog/wp-content/uploads/2008/09/image7.png&w=461&h=422&ei=rMeiUKmnLKOWiAK-4IGADA&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=4&vpy=192&dur=820&hovh=215&hovw=235&tx=154&ty=121&sig=101769616932335010289&page=1&tbnh=150&tbnw=164&start=0&ndsp=24&ved=1t:429,r:0,s:0,i:76

            Is there a way to change that as well?

            I am not able to find that text in the two files you provided.

                My suggestion helped or not?
                If helps I expect mark as helpful or correct, since your error is not related to specific as your current issue.

                can you send me email with screenshot by marking area where you want to change?

                  Not helpful yet, but I am sure it will be helpful if your answer is based on my question.

                  So see this image?

                  http://www.google.com/imgres?um=1&hl=en&sa=N&tbo=d&biw=1440&bih=799&tbm=isch&tbnid=mRfflVb5OLgpwM:&imgrefurl=http://knowledge.ciber.nl/weblog/%3Fp%3D132&docid=v4l2psBWhb6NxM&imgurl=http://knowledge.ciber.nl/weblog/wp-content/uploads/2008/09/image7.png&w=461&h=422&ei=rMeiUKmnLKOWiAK-4IGADA&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=4&vpy=192&dur=820&hovh=215&hovw=235&tx=154&ty=121&sig=101769616932335010289&page=1&tbnh=150&tbnw=164&start=0&ndsp=24&ved=1t:429,r:0,s:0,i:76

                  If you click on the link, an image pops up and do you see a text 'Oracle Business Intelligence 10.1.3.4 ' between 'select a language' and 'Copyright'?

                  If you see, then my question is simply how to change from 'Oracle Business Intelligence 10.1.3.4' to 'Business Intelligence -- 10.1.3.4'?

                  Thanks

                  Your point is waiting for you...

                  Email me at lumpineeman@aol.com in case I don't check back to the forum just to remind me to aware you points after u gave helpful answers..

                  Thanks

                    Look for the 'Footer' in the below file and comment out the entire font tag
                    OracleBI\web\msgdb\messages\logoncontrolmessages.xml
                    FYI:
                    <sawm:param insert="2"/> is for Version
                    <sawm:param insert="8"/> is for Copyright

                    Let me know for issues

                    Looking forward to update your other post

                      Thanks for the reply

                      There are many footers and <sawm:param insert="2"/> in logoncontrolmessage,xml file.

                      There is nowhere that's currently defined the text as 'Oracle Business Intelligence 10.1.3.4'.

                      Any idea on where and how to change that?

                      PS: The other post is updated

                        I was talking about the last part

                        <tr><td class="Footer" align="center" valign="bottom"><font size="1"><sawm:messageRef name="kmsgProductGeneral"/>&amp;nbsp;<sawm:param insert="2"/>&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;<sawm:param insert="8"/></font></td></tr></table><script language="javascript"><sawm:messageRef name="kmsgLogonPostJavaScript"/></script></HTML>

                        The below are ref:
                        kmsgProductGeneral---for--->Oracle Business Intelligence
                        <sawm:param insert="2"/> ----for--->10.1.3.4
                        <sawm:param insert="8"/>-----for---->Copyright

                        Use this or comment out for every thing change it as per need, as shown here
                        <tr><td class="Footer" align="center" valign="bottom"><!--font size="1"><sawm:messageRef name="kmsgProductGeneral"/>&amp;nbsp;<sawm:param insert="2"/>&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;<sawm:param insert="8"/></font--></td></tr></table><script language="javascript"><sawm:messageRef name="kmsgLogonPostJavaScript"/></script></HTML>

                          Thanks

                          So for this ref:
                          kmsgProductGeneral---for--->Oracle Business Intelligence

                          What if I want to change 'Oracle Business Intelligence' to 'Business Intelligence'?, Do I modify 'kmsgProductGeneral'? Or How should I go about?

                          Thanks

                            and use 'Business Intelligence'

                            Any updates on this?!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                              Hi,

                              To Change the login text we will need to change 2 files logonmessages.xml and signin.html. Follow below steps to change:

                              1. Add a custom WebMessage to logonmessages.xml under <BI_Installation>/Oracle_BI1/bifoundation/web/msgdb/l_en/messages. This is for language dependent. The example i am giving is for english.

                              <WebMessage name="kmsgSampleMsg1"><TEXT>I am here and invincible. </TEXT></WebMessage>

                              2. Add the below code in the location you wanted to show in signin.html under <BI_Installation>/Oracle_BI1/bifoundation/web/msgdbpages/common

                              <!-- code from below line

                              <div align="center" class="centerDiv">
                              <table width="500" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
                              <tr><td class="opttext"><font color="darkblue" size="2"><b><sawm:messageRef name="kmsgSampleMsg1"/></b></font>

                              </td>
                              </tr>
                              </table>
                              </div>

                              --> code till above line

                              3. In case if you wanted to delete the Copyright text you can delete it.

                              Let me know if this worked for you.

                              Regards,
                              Jay
