portal logon images using par file does not change Biller Direct logon moreover,

I have researched SDN and did not find a good document to do the same which

encouraged me to write this Blog. I am also ending one of other misconception

that you can’t change Biller Direct without NWDI.


Blog is a guide of changing look and feel of Biller Direct you might require

help of Basis Consultant as you need to get into physical system for changing.

    Hi Kai

    Thanks for your response , please notice that this is change to biller direct portal screen which you access using /bd .

    However this is not a portal login screen which you access through /irj.

    So you can’t change this using NWDS as far i know.

    Before you start going down this path, it is worth noting that you need to replace the files after every support pack/patch, and do this on every instance and server node…

    changing the files directly on file system will cause issues when you apply patches to BD portal…you need to re-apply your customization everytime + do it manually on all server nodes and instances and not to forget to do it Dev/QA/PROD without transport will also cause exceptions to be agreed…its one way you can achieve it but not best practice

    best practice is to import fscm~bd application in NWDI track, use NWDS to apply customization and deploy…

      Yes i agree i need to change it after upgrade / patches .This can’t be done using par devlopment hence not transportable. The only way possible is changing server file location ,other alternate was going through NWDI .

      However i dont think customer will opt for NWDI just for biller direct portal customization.

        Hi guys,

        Thanks for your inputs.

        As I said this is one of the options based on circumstances and definitely not limited to.

        I appreciate all your concerns but let me clear you that this solution is very much in consensus with customer with the available infrastructure. Its not feasible in all situations to go for NWDI specially when the time at hand is crunching and customer is on top of you for the quick result.

        Though additionally customer has asked us to provide the manual so that their technical support team could do this activity post any patch or system changeover. So I would say a win-win situations for us here.
