UAG Basic Customization, Part 2

For information on how to change basic logon page settings please, refer to the first part of this post - UAG Basic Customization, Part 1.
Please, note that all file locations mentioned in this article are installation defaults and may differ from locations you have selected during the installation.
We can also customize basic properties of the UAG Portal pages (displayed after successful logon on trunks that use built-in Portal as a default application):   
  header & toolbar

footer
  • Under C:\Program Files\Microsoft Forefront Unified Access Gateway\von\PortalHomePage\Data\Languages\ locate an appropriate language file, in our case en-US.xml, and copy it to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Forefront Unified Access Gateway\von\PortalHomePage\Data\Languages\CustomUpdate\.
  • Open en-US.xml file in the \CustomUpdate folder using Notepad and perform the following edits (based on the above sample):
    1. <String id="12" _locID="12"> - desired title
    2. <String id="182" _locID="182"> - desired support contact
    3. <String id="1" _locID="1"> - desired corporate message
  • Save the changes in en-US.xml (remember to always use customization file under \CustomUpdate, and not the original one)

It may also be desirable to add hyperlinks to the following areas, for example to point: 1) to the Help Desk email address; 2) to the Corporate web site:


footer
  • Under C:\Program Files\Microsoft Forefront Unified Access Gateway\von\PortalHomePage\Data\SiteMap\Footer\ locate file LeftFooter.sitemap and copy it to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Forefront Unified Access Gateway\von\PortalHomePage\Data\SiteMap\Footer\CustomUpdate\
  • Edit siteMapNode url parameters as needed. Here's an example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<siteMap xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/AspNet/SiteMap-File-1.0" enableLocalization="true">
    <siteMapNode url="" title=""  description="">
      <siteMapNode url="mailto:help@companyXYZ.com"                   title="$Resources:Resource, 182"
                   description="$Resources:Resource, 182"
                   imageUrl=""
                   displayMode="OnlyText"
                   target="_blank" />
      <siteMapNode url=""
                   title="|"
                   description=""
                   imageUrl=""
                   displayMode="OnlyText"
                   target=""
                   />
      <siteMapNode url="http://www.CompanyXYZ.com"                   title="$Resources:Resource,1"
                   description=""
                   imageUrl=""
                   displayMode="OnlyText"
                   target=""
                   selectable="false"
                     />
    </siteMapNode>
</siteMap>

Last but not least, there's "E-mail system administrator" button on the toolbar that can be hyperlink enabled:
toolbar

  • Under C:\Program Files\Microsoft Forefront Unified Access Gateway\von\PortalHomePage\Data\SiteMap\ToolBar\ locate file Web.sitemap and copy it to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Forefront Unified Access Gateway\von\PortalHomePage\Data\SiteMap\ToolBar\CustomUpdate\
  • Open Web.sitemap file in the \CustomUpdate folder using Notepad. Find the line that contains "mailto:" and change it to reflect an appropriate support contact information:
    • for example: <siteMapNode url="mailto:help@companyXYZ.com"
  • Save the changes in Web.sitemap (remember to always use customization file under \CustomUpdate, and not the original one)
