Is there a way to add a link to F5 login page? I open up a case with the support and they told me that this requires engagement of professional services
It suppose to be straightforward to do this but I couldn't find any documentation besides
Are you looking to add a link next to the username/password fields or in the center of the page?
If it's possible next to user name password field
If it's a huge problem center with alignment to the left will be fine
You can edit the HTML documents for the login page if you really want to... The web interface is served by an apache instance running on the host.
Note that it isn't going to be something that F5 will support, but can be done (I've done it in the past myself. Updates tend to wipe it out though).
I wonder is there any workaround that F5 will support
You can put HTML tags in the Logon page, Header field. Did that for a "forgot password" link, without the need to edit the HTML pages.
That will appear above the username/password fields.
Would be nice to have a trailer field too :-)
Will try & clarify a bit. Making customisations is fully supported... The bit that ISN'T supported is F5 won't be supporting your changes... (i.e. If your changes break it, don't go raising a call to F5 unless it's able to be proven that it's an actual APM fault).
There's a few docs around on devcentral for login page customisations (IIRC Jason did one for google authenticator for example). I've got one that adds a checkbox to enable the login button myself...
Does tend to make upgrading a challenge though...
I've had allot of experience with customizing the APM login page but I can tell you it's not worth the trouble. The app owners will always want "just one more" change to customize it into oblivion.
My suggestion would be to use the external login page option in the VPE. This will make it redirect to another page that can be customized to look however you want. The page can be another URL located anywhere. The form action for that page will then POST back to APM with the credentials.
