Custom Sign In Page

  1. Create a custom sign in page.

    To create the page, the login form must have the username and password HTML text inputs with the following names:

    <input type=”text” name=”nexuslogin” id=”nexuslogin” />
    <input type=”password” name=”nexuspassword” id=”nexuspassword” />
    

    The login form must post to Appspace login page URL, for e.g. “http://appspace.nexusondemand.com/app/login.aspx”. After the custom login page is created, upload it to your public server.

    The following is a sample custom login page and the associated HTML code behind it.

    <html>
    <head>
    <title>My Custom Login Page</title>
    </head>
    
    <body>
    <div id=”stylized” class=”myform”>
      <form id=”form” name=”form” method=”post” action=”http://appspace.nexusondemand.com/app/login.aspx”>
