Display multiple repositories at login page
« on: November 24, 2015, 08:59:26 PM »
Hello - We are migrating from WEBi to ICN.  Currently we have several repositories hosted under a single WEBi installation. When people log in they just select the one they need to go from the drop down menu. I have been trying to replicate this in ICn instead of creating desktops. Any ideas/thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks
Siva

Hello,

the first idea I have is the following:

- Create 1 desktop per CMOD repository
- Create a HTML page with the link for each repository (or a drop down with all the link if you want).

The users will be shown only the HTML page, and when they select the repository, then they will be shown the ICN desktop for that repository.
The user can log in.

Not the best method...

Hi Alessandro - Thanks for the quick response. That confirms desktop is the only way.  I think I might have to do something like  you suggested  or have my Windows Admin add  favorite's in the profile by default. I liked the WEBi implementation personally. ICN complicates things a bit and for a WEB App to need a DB to store it's config is not to my liking.

Thanks,
Siva

In a sense I agree with you, and at the same time the database is not only for the configuration, but also for saving the user settings/favorites/etc...

And the fact that you have all the ICN configuration done in this web admin console is 10000% way better than the old WEBi gui in Unix which was quite buggy...

Another idea I had, was to maybe create a ICN plugin in order to create "automagically" the first screen.
Or maybe using the Javascript interface of ICN in order to do what you want.

Wenn I have time, I'll check if that's possible :-)
