Redirect password change to custom page

Redirect password change to custom page

Issue

Customer would like the Change Password option to open their own password change application, not the one built into Unified Workspace.


Solution

There are two ways to accomplish this.
  • Change stoneware/webserv/apps/selfService/ChangePassword.jsp (back it up and make your own changes) which might do the password change or redirect you to another 3rd party page.
    Remember to backup your custom changes before installing any future updates.


  • The other way is to edit the /stoneware/webserv/web-inf/web.xml.
    Change the <jsp-file>/apps/selfService/changePassword</jsp-file> under the <servlet-name>changePassword<servlet-name> section to point to your custom password change page.

    One way to do this is to create a jsp page with a meta refresh that takes them to the custom change password page.

    Something like : meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=http://changepass.example-cloud.com/"

    Point the web.xml to this new jsp page, which will then redirect to your change password URL
    Remember to backup your custom changes before installing any future updates.
