Using alternate URL to login to Focal Point

Technote (FAQ)


Question

Is it possible change login URL in IBM Rational Focal Point?

Cause

It may be necessary to use an alternate login address and there is no documentation about how to alter or shorten the login URL.

Answer

No, it is not possible to change the login URL in Rational Focal Point.

The Focal application login URL is hard coded to bring up the login page and can not be changed.

WORKAROUND:

You can configure Tomcat to redirect a URL.

For example from http://focalpoint to http://focalpoint/fp/servlet/Login

To redirect you can try this:

In Tomcat home\webapps\ROOT ( the default folder that is accessed), when accessing just the Tomcat URL http://focalpoint (for example), place a file that will redirect to /fp/servlet/Login.

Here is an example:

<html>

<head>

<title>Focal Point</title>

<META HTTP-EQUIV=REFRESH CONTENT="0; URL=/fp/servlet/Login">

</head>

</html>

Save the above as index.html and place in Tomcat home\webapps\ROOT

You should be able to login when you access http://focalpoint.
