Appendix B: Portal page contents fields

The Content Editor is navigated using the tree control on the left side. The top level of the hierarchy represents the scope, such as Registration or Remediation. The Global scope contains common items that apply to all portal pages across all scopes. Within each scope are pages. When a page is selected the properties it contains are displayed on the right. Each page contains properties that can be edited such as Window titles or login text. The Portal Content Editor includes the following portal pages: Global, Registration, Authentication, Remediation, VPN, Isolation, Dead End, Policy Failure, Agent, EasyConnect, and Host Inventory.

Field types on each page include the following:

Type

Description

Boolean

Check box that enables or disables a feature or subsequent field.

Text

Text fields are available for you to enter custom text that is displayed on your Captive Portal Page. If you are familiar with HTML, you can include HTML in these fields. For example, to make something bold and italics, you would do the following:

<b><i>Contact the Help Desk.</i></b>

The message on the web page would display as:

Contact the Help Desk.

For users who are accessing your web pages you may also have text fields. These fields are set to type Input and typically only allow text.

Input

If you have set a data entry field to type input, you are indicating that the web page user should enter text. You can enter a default value to prompt the user but it can be overridden. For example, if you set Postal Code to your local postal code, most users would not have to modify this field and it would save them a step.

Password

If you have set a data entry field to type password, any data typed into the field by the user will display as dots or asterisks to mask the actual characters being entered.

Hidden

If you have set a data entry field to type hidden, the user does not see it on the web page, however, it does contain data that is passed to the server. You must enter the data in the Portal Content Editor. For example, if all users who register via the Registration page should be set to a particular Role, such as, Staff, you can enter Staff in the Role field for them and mark it as hidden.

Select

If you have set a data entry field to type select, the user is presented with a drop-down list of options on the web page. To construct the list of options you must enter list items as follows:

(Value,Name : Value,Name)

Example: Color1,Blue : Color2,Red : Color3,Green

Inline Help icon

Displays inline help containing a description and usage for the field.

Note

Text fields in the Portal Contents Editor accept HTML. However, if you copy and paste HTML developed in another program you may corrupt the data stored for your web pages. Specifically, HTML containing curly or curved quotes instead of straight quotes will corrupt your web pages and they will become unusable.
