Active Directory management & automation

Customize Sign-In Page and Logon Name Options

In this tutorial you will learn how to:

  • Allow users to enter their usernames without the domain part when logging in to the Web Interface.
    Example: jsmith instead of DOMAINNAME\jsmith.
  • Allow users to use a specific property of their account as login name.
    For example, you can allow users to use their email address or Employee ID as username.
  • Enable automatic logon to the Web Interface.
  • Customize the HTML code of the Sign-In page. You can configure the page to display some custom text, links, images, etc.

To configure options related to the Sign-In page of the Web Interface:

On the computer, where the Web Interface is installed, start the Web Interface Customization tool.


In the Interface type drop-down list, select the Web Interface that you want to configure.


Activate the Sign In tab.

Allowing users to enter their usernames without the domain part

If Adaxes manages only one Active Directory domain, users can enter their username without the domain part by default. If Adaxes manages multiple AD domains, you need to specify the domain that will be used when a username doesn't contain the domain part.

  • Click Configure Username Options.
  • Make sure the Allow users to enter their username without the domain part option is enabled.
  • Select the desired domain in the Default domain combo box.
  • Click OK.

Allowing users to use a specific property of their account as logon name

To configure the Web Interface to allow users to use a specific property of their account as username:

  • Click Configure Username Options.
  • In the Property for Username section, click Add.
  • Select the property you need and click OK two times.

If, for example, you added the Email property to the list, users will be able to use their email address to logon to the Web Interface:

You may also want to change the example text that is displayed below the Username field on the Sign-In page. To change the text, enable the Display custom example for the Username field option, and enter custom example text into the Custom example text field.

Enabling Automatic Logon

To enable automatic logon to Adaxes Web Interface using the credentials of the currently logged on user, click the Enable Automatic Logon button.

If due to any reason you fail to enable the Auto-Logon feature using the Web Interface Customization tool, you can enable automatic logon manually.

Customizing the HTML code of the Sign-In page

To customize the HTML code of the top part of the Sigh In page:

  • Click Customize HTML of the Top of the Page.
  • In the dialog that opens, modify the HTML code of the top part of the Sign In page.
  • Click OK.

When finished, click Apply.
There is no need to restart IIS to apply the changes, as the changes are applied automatically.
