Issue/Introduction

Would like to add dashboard as home page for all users.

Cause

To set a user's dashboard as a home page, each user has to be set one at a time.

Environment

Release : 3.7

Component : IM Reporting / Admin / Configuration

Resolution

There is no way to do this in the console, but we can set it using mysql.

  1. Backup mysql netqosportal database.
  2. Log in as a user and set the home page you desire.
  3. Open a shell to the CAPC host and log into mysql

mysql netqosportal -unetqos -ppassword (replace password)

  1. Get the homepagepageid for the user you just set:

select userid,name,homepagepageid from user_definitions;

  1. Set all the other users to use that homepagepageid:

update user_definitions set homepagepageid=********;

  1. Verify the changes:

select userid,,name,homepagepageid from user_definitions;

  1. Exit mysql: quit

Now proxy in as a few users and verify it worked.
