We are wondering if there is a setting in the forms configuration for redirecting a forgot password or password reset to an external URL using an external tool to reset the employees' active directory password, that filters down to the Laserfiche account?
We're aiming to introduce official support for customizing the LFDSSTS login page as an intermediate-term project. The idea would be to make it easy to add common customizations like system use disclaimers, instructions on which login method to select, and really whatever text (or basic HTML) you want.
I generally second what Matt said. While not technically "sanctioned", adding a hyperlink and some instructional text to the LFDSSTS Login.cshtml file is pretty low on the list of customizations we worry about. If you do go that route, be smart about it, take a backup of the original file before making any changes, and make a backup copy of the modified file once you're happy with it because an LFDS upgrade will usually wipe any such direct customizations.
(Matt, I've added a note reading "Enthusiastically recommended forbidden software modifications to the entire Answers community" to your file*)
(*lest anyone's humor detector's be turned off, this is a joke)
I do appreciate that Laserfiche is considering supporting editing to that page! But due to our custom installation, we already modify both our internal and external pages to remove the need for the end user to enter the AD domain first in front of their username. I just thought there might be a setting somewhere that allowed that but if direct edit to the link is what is needed I will work on that the next time I need to make changes due to an update. It is not that big an issue as the email does not reach the employee for them to reset inside of Laserfiche, it just causes confusion when they do not receive an email which usually results in a call to our help desk where we resolve the issue by referring them to the proper tool. I was just wanting to simplify things by redirecting them to our AD password tool via URL, which can be done when we modify the script next time for the domain injection on both pages.
So you're just wanting to be able to add a link to the login page?
This would probably not be sanctioned by Laserfiche, and would have to be re-done after installing any updates - and you shouldn't touch it unless you really know what you are doing - but you could possibly edit the LogIn.cshtml file on the server to include the link when generating the login page.
Do not do anything like this unless you really, really, really know what you are doing - and save a copy of the original file before you edit anything - and try it on a test environment before touching a live environment.
This is of course a hypothetical solution - I absolutely did not advise anyone to try to do anything like this at all...
I got halfway into removing the "forgot password" button from the Forms front page and forgot about it until right now! I had multiple staff attempting to use it.
maybe that button could kick of a powershell reset password script....
