Received Response


Content (required):

  1. How we can set custom dashboard page as home page for all the users in OAC ?

We are aware in my account we can set under preference but need something which can be done for all users in one go.

2) However, after setting custom page as start page under my account -> preferences its working as expected only on first fresh login, and after that if i click on home it is going to default OAC home Page. Please suggest on clicking home icon also we need it go to custom home page as set in preference

Version (include the version you are using, if applicable):

  • Hi Laxmish,

    You can define a session variable for PORTALPATH which gets initialized for all the users with the default landing page.

    How To Use Session Variable PORTALPATH? (Doc ID 2215294.1)



  • You can set it in DV > console > System Settings > Portal Path, just enter the path of the dashboard you want to use.

    And you can't change the behavior of the "Home" link in the top main menu in OAC : the homepage of the product is a different thing than the "starting page" you can set in "My Account" (or with the Portal Path setting in DV or the variable).

    That's why it is called "starting page" and not "homepage" : it only set the value of the initial page where the user is redirected after a successful login.

    If you want your dashboard to be easily accessible by having a link in the main menu (where you have "Home"), you can add a custom link in DV > console > System Settings > Custom Links XML.
