SITEMINDER CA Single Sign On Secure Proxy Server (SiteMinder)


Is there a way to use a custom login.fcc file for the authentication scheme on SiteMinder Access Gateway?


Release : 12.8.07



Yes, this can be accomplished by some minor changes, and customization result depends on ACO Localization value.


When Localization is commented out on the ACO, it will take the default value as localization=Yes.

Assuming the locale is en-US, then it will pick the content from folder 

C:\Program Files\CA\secure-proxy\proxy-engine\examples\siteminderagent/forms_en-US/login_en-US.fcc

The doc link below explain more on how Localization works.

If conduct a quick modification of the file content, then it will display the change.

The log confirms the loading location as well.

Please be aware, Access Gateway may require a stop/start service, and remove old login_en-US.fcc file out of folder, to avoid cache interference.

If Localization=no, this will revert agent to behave like agent versions prior to 12.51.  Disabling agent internationalization prevents the use of all forms supplied with the new agent and disables all other agent internationalization features. For a long term solution, we recommend migrating your existing FCCs to work on an internationalized agent and reenabling agent internationalization.
