Personalizing URLs for the Web Console and the Command Center

Updated

URLs that include a user name are supported for Command Center and Web Console. When a user name is included in the login URL, the user name is pre-populate on the login page. You can include domain\user name or the email address for the user.

The URLs must use the following formats:

  • Web Console URL

    • http://host_name:port/webconsole?username=username%40companyname.com where %40 is the encoding for the at symbol (@)

    • http://host_name:port/webconsole?username=domain_name%5cusername where %5c is the encoding for the backward slash (\)

  • Command Center URL

    • http://host_name:port/adminconsole?username=username%40companyname.com where %40 is the encoding for the at symbol (@)

    • http://host_name:port/adminconsole?username=domain_name%5cuser_name where, %5c is the encoding for the backward slash (\)

If there are additional special characters in the username attribute, you must also encode those characters into a valid ASCII format. The following are examples of when additional encoding is needed:

  • If the user name includes a space, the encoded username attribute is http://host_name:port/adminconsole?username=mycompany%5Cjohn%20%20smith.

  • If the email address includes an ampersand, the encoded username attribute is http://host_name:port/adminconsole?username=jane%26john%40mycompany.com.
