Question

Currently web-login.html file is used to modify pega login page in HTML and CSS, Is there a way to build login screen using pega sections and harness rather than HTML code

When we tried including a harness in web-login.html login page itself is not rendering. Is there any specific pegaRules RS that has to be added as production RS?(apart from the unauthenticated RS that we add which holds customized web-login.html)

When we sell our product to customers, they buy Pega with the basic intention to build using pega. If they again start building using HTML and CSS to color their portal login page in the very first place use of pega becomes void as we are reducing the extensibility.

Is there anyway so that the real pega login page can be customized with OOTB capabilities without custom coding.

Hello,

Here's is the solution as communicated to the moderators: 

It is not possible to include a harness in the web login since you are unauthenticated and you do not have access to the css and js files that would be needed for correct harness rendering.
You are mainly left with writing custom HMTL

Thank you,

Hello Bogga,

Have you tried doing as per : https://pdn.pega.com/customizing-pega-7-login-screen

as by default the standard login and logout screens for desktop applications and mobile applications uses Pega branding images however since you need a custom page it is necessary to make these changes.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Regards,

Hi charles

Our requirement is not just to change background image and login button look and feel, our requirement is quite large like we need to embed marketing offers, Chat , KM portal links, new customer registration hyperlinks, etc. So it would suffice for us if we are able to include a harness in web-login.html. But currently when we try to include, we are getting error on loading and login screen itself is loading.

 

Our intention is to use pega harness instead of customizing in web-login.

This is similar to Replace Web-Login by a Pega Harness

Hi Bogga,

I hope you have read through the complete article your referring to which sheds some light how to achieve it. However there is no straight forward way to get this done using OOTB.

You mean to say that you need to fetch some data from Pega Database in plain HTML code? If so then you can't achieve it.
