Move UAG portal bar change password link to webpage RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a SharePoint site that we are exposing to the outer world via UAG. In this case we do not want to show the UAG portal bar as it has no relevance for our users' requirements and we need that landscape for other stuff.

    Hiding the UAG portal bar seems straightforward enough as mentioned here - http://blogs.technet.com/b/edgeaccessblog/archive/2011/01/04/hiding-the-uag-portal-bar.aspx

    The questions is, is there any way we can move the "Change Password" link which is available in the UAG portal bar under the "Credentials Management" option, to the masterpage of my SharePoint site. We need to provide this option to our users to allow them to change passwords, but do not want to expose the  UAG portal bar.

    Any help would be much appreciated. Please do let me know if you need more details.

     

    Thanks
    Nik

    @Nik:

    I guess the URL you're using is malformated. Did you noticed the "http://" in your URL? So i encourage you to fetch the URL directly out of your Partal Bar to get sure...

    @Matt:

    The Change Password web part you've posted does only work with SharePoint SQL-Membership providers. A while ago my collegues have developed a web part for changing passwords in Windows Domain/Active Directory environments. Their web part is published on Codeplex and its free to use...

  • Hi Nik,

    1.) An easy solution would be placing a direct link or an Iframe to the UAG change password page somewhere on your SharePoint site.

    The Link would be something like...

    https://mytrunk.domain.tld/InternalSite/LoginChangePassword.asp?login_type=13&site_name=mytrunk&secure=1&index=2
    (i'm unsure about the login_type= and index= values. So please take a look to the URLs your own Portal Bar is using ("copy shortcut" and remove the jscripts).

    ... when the user clicks on this link while he uses UAG the change password page will appear.

    2.) The more advanced solution would inject (via AppWrap) the Link or Iframe to the UAG change password web page on-the-fly (without changing the actual SharePoint content), so that users who access the site internaly wouldn't see the UAG related links & ressources.

  • Hi Kai

    Many thanks, i did think on the same lines. I tried with option number 1 but no matter what i do, i keep getting generic UAG error messages when I click on that link or paste this into the browser where UAG is already running.

    http://MyPortal.myDomain.com/InternalSite/LoginChangePassword.asp?login_type=13&site_name=portalpilot&secure=1&index=0

    The error i get is this. I get it even when i paste the url into the browser running UAG session, directly.

    Logon error
    The logon process cannot be completed. The page was accessed from an unauthorized URL.
    Navigate back and follow another link, or type in a different URL.

    Option 2 seems to advanced for just now and I would prefer the simple solution here.

    I'll keep trying on this front and get back when I have the answer. If you can however give me any more pointers on what may be wrong here, that would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

  • Hi Nik,

    Which solution did you use, the link to LoginChangePassword.asp or the web part?

    I'm trying to use option 1, a link to LoginChangePassword.asp on my webpage but i get the same error:

    The logon process cannot be completed. The page was accessed from an unauthorized URL.
    Navigate back and follow another link, or type in a different URL.

    If you used option 1 (the link) how did you solved this?

    Regards,

    Maikel.

  • Hi all.

    Is there anyone with a solution for option 1? I get the same "The page was accessed from an unauthorized URL" message!

    My environment:

    Trunk:
    "trunkmyproject"  external host: trunkmyproject.mydomain.ch  IP: 212.113.116.77

    Application:
    SharePoint 2010 Application
    "myproject" external host: myproject.mydomain.ch

    myproject.mydomain.ch and trunkmyproject.mydomain.ch show to same IP.

    public DNS is registered for: myproject.mydomain.ch  / for the trunk there doesn't exist a DNS.

    Initial Internal Application: "myproject" / [ ] Display home page within portal frame

    User shouldn't use the portal and don't even know, that one exists!

    User access Application: https://myproject.mydomain.ch

    When I enter following link to change Password page I get the "...accessed from an unauthorized URL... " message:

    https://myproject.mydomain.ch/InternalSite/LoginChangePassword.asp?login_type=13&site_name=trunkmyproject&secure=1&index=2

    Any idea?

    André
