Changing the landing page after login

Jump to solution

Hello,

I am trying to get the user that successfully login directly into my site dashboard home page. For that I have changed the site-index.jsp but it keeps on taking it back to default dashboard.

Here is my code below.

// retrieve user name from the session
String userid = (String)session.getAttribute(SlingshotUserFactory.SESSION_ATTRIBUTE_KEY_USER_ID);

// test user dashboard page exists?
RequestContext context = (RequestContext)request.getAttribute(RequestContext.ATTR_REQUEST_CONTEXT);
if (!context.getObjectService().hasPage("user/" + userid + "/dashboard"))
{
// no user dashboard page found! create initial dashboard for this user...
Map<String, String> tokens = new HashMap<String, String>();
tokens.put("userid", userid);
FrameworkUtil.getServiceRegistry().getPresetsManager().constructPreset("user-dashboard", tokens);
}

// redirect to site or user dashboard as appropriate
String siteName = request.getParameter("mysite");
if (siteName == null || siteName.length() == 0)
{
// Get and forward to user's home page
SlingshotUserFactory slingshotUserFactory =
(SlingshotUserFactory) FrameworkUtil.getServiceRegistry().getUserFactory();
String userHomePage = slingshotUserFactory.getUserHomePage(context, userid);
response.sendRedirect(request.getContextPath() + userHomePage);
}
else
{
// forward to site specific dashboard page
response.sendRedirect(request.getContextPath() + "/page/site/" + URLEncoder.encode(siteName) + "/dashboard");
}
%>

mysite is the name of my site.

Only change I have made is the site name on first bold line and another on the second bold line where I added +"/dashboard".

Any idea where I am going wrong.

Thanks in advance

You say "mySite" is the name of my site.

If that is the case, why are you reading the name of the site from the parameters?

String siteName = request.getParameter("mysite");

If I understood it correctly, that line of code could be changed to something like

String siteName = "mysite";

What is your Alfresco version ? From recent Alfresco 5.2 versions, users have redirect login page feature.

Kind regards.
