Identifying SAP Manufacturing Servers to Users at Logon
With the New Year comes the opportunity to create a new blog 🙂
Many customers have multiple SAP Manufacturing Execution environments within their IT infrastructure. Whether it is the SAP Manufacturing Execution QA or the SAP Manufacturing Execution Development server, it can often be difficult for users to identify which SAP Manufacturing Execution server they are logging into by the URL itself.
One solution to this problem, is to identify the SAP Manufacturing Execution servers via their login screens.
This blog will guide you through this process.
Whether you are logging into SAP Manufacturing; SAP MII or SAP Netweaver, the same SAP Netweaver UME screen is presented. Therefore, the following changes only have to be made once for them to be reflected for all three applications.
There are two main visual elements of the login screen that could be changed.
- The Text Image
These images are referenced within Netweaver Identity Management.
Configuration>Identity Management>Configuration>Open Expert Mode
To change these referenced images you will need access to your Netweaver server and save your new images. The path is:
To reference the new image(s), simply click modify in expert mode and change the default image name to the name of the new image you wish to reference.
Below I have changed the reference to a new image for the Branding Text.
When completed changes should then be saved.
ℹ This change is immediately available and doesn’t require a restart of Netweaver
Thus the login page now shows the user which server they are logging into.
❗ These file changes would likely be over written during any deployment of a new NW version
I hope this blog has been of some value
