Post subject: Web Server Home page Redirection to Business Objects Logon

Web Server (Tomcat) Home page Redirection to Business Objects XIR2 Logon Page.

Please copy the Index.jsp script file to the following location on the tomcat web server to be able to provide automatic redirection from the web server (tomcat) home page to the Business Objects XI R2 Logon page.

D:\Program Files\Business Objects\Tomcat\webapps\ROOT\index.jsp

How to make http://<servername> default to InfoView

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The bestway to let users use a specific web site name without using the Routers/Load balancing devices is to configure the tomcat web server to run on port 80 instead of 8080 during the initial installation , this will eliminate the need for the XI R2 Infoview users to type 8080 next to the Infoview Site Name.

If the Webfiles are installed under local host on the tomcat web server (default XI R2 Installation) all you will need is to provide the IP Address of the Web Server and to ask the Network Administrator to create a DNS Alias for the IP Address of the Web Server . The DNS Alias can be called <reports> ,<infoview> , <datawarehouse> , <businessobjects> ,<ABCCompany> .....

http://webservername:8080/businessobjects/enterprise115/desktoplaunch/InfoView/logon/logon.do.

becomes

http://ABCCompany/businessobjects/enterprise115/desktoplaunch/InfoView/logon/logon.do.

The attached redirection script will redirect the users to the infoview homepage when they type

http://ABCCompany

becomes

http://ABCCompany/businessobjects/enterprise115/desktoplaunch/InfoView/logon/logon.do.

Hi,

What would be the contents of

C:\Program Files\Business Objects\Tomcat55\webapps\ROOT\index.jsp

I put the below and it doesn't work!


<%@ page language = "java" %>

<%
response.sendRedirect("http://server:8080/InfoViewApp/logon.jsp");
%>

Manasi..this is how the contents of my file look like-

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
<!-- Begin
window.location = "http://<servername>/InfoViewApp/logon.jsp";
// End -->
</script>



and we have made port # 80 as the default port for Tomcat. These two things in combination helped us achieve our goal.
Hope it helps

Thanks,
Buddy

Does it matter where in the index.jsp file you put this?
