Hi,

Dont think this is possible, note that in 8207.28 the home page aka WebFOCUS Hub/New Start Page has changed quite a bit.

Snippet from manual on how to customize home page:

BI Portal Settings

BI Portal settings configure the display and behavior of the BI Portal.

Redirect /ibi_apps to

Identifies the default home page.

In this setting, /ibi_apps is the main alias or context under which all WebFOCUS webpages are located. This is the typical context in most installations, but your local installation may use a different context. If that is the case, the name you use in your installation will appear in the label for this setting instead.

Note: Dont use the term /bi as the main alias or context. This is a reserved term, and its use as an alias or context prevents the proper display of the Administration Console and Security Center.

The options in this setting direct users to one of the following locations, by default.

 

 

New Start Page. When this option is selected, a start page that connects you directly to WebFOCUS Client and WebFOCUS Server views from a Navigation Bar and related menus is the default entry page. This is the default value for this setting, as of release 8207.28.

 

WebFOCUS Home Page. When this option is selected, the WebFOCUS Home Page, first developed for Release 8.2 Version 02 is the default home page.

 

 

Show Legacy Home Page option in Banner Links. Controls the display of the Legacy Home Page command in the User menu, which opens when you click your user name on the WebFOCUS Home Page. The Legacy home page was first developed in Release 8.2 Version 01. Administrators may continue to need access to this page in order to work with Resource Templates.

 

When this check box is selected, the Legacy Home Page command appears in the User menu. This is the default setting.

When this check box is cleared, the Legacy Home Page command does not appear in the User menu. Even if this check box is cleared, users can open the Legacy home page by typing /ibi_apps/legacyhome in their browser address bar.

 

 

 

 

 

Legacy Home Page. When this option is selected, the Legacy home page that was developed in Release 8.2 Version 01 is the default home page. It provides access to Global Resources, Resource Templates, and Change Management features that do not appear on the WebFOCUS Home Page.

 

Custom Welcome Page. When this option is selected, the page that is identified in the /ibi_apps/ field underneath this option is the default home page. Typically, a portal serves as a custom welcome page, but this setting can also contain a URL, a report, or a focexec-generated HTML page.When you select this option, the browser address bar displays only the basic context when the custom welcome page opens. It does not display the full URL of the custom welcome page.

 

 

/ibi_apps/. Identifies the URL of the content that serves as the custom welcome page within the main alias or context.This field contains only that portion of the URL for the custom welcome page that comes after the main alias or context. The main context is automatically added to the value in this field to create a full URL when redirecting users to the custom welcome page identified in this field.For example, if you use a basic portal for the custom welcome page, and the full URL is:

 

 

 

Server01.ibi.com:8080/ibi_apps/bip/portal/Sales_Performance.

The value in the /ibi_apps/ field would be:

bip/portal/Sales_Performance.

Note: You can use basic portals only if your product version supports them, and the Basic Portal option is enabled.If you use a collaborative portal for the custom welcome page and the full URL is:

Server01.ibi.com:8080/ibi_apps/portal/sales_october/sales_october.

The value in the /ibi_apps/ field would be:

portal/sales_october/sales_october.

Note: You can use collaborative portals only if your product version supports them, and the Collaborative Portal option is enabled.If you chose to use the Portals Home Page as the custom welcome page, the value in the /ibi_apps/ field must be:

portals.

Note: The Portals Home Page will be populated with basic or collaborative portals only if your product version supports these portal types, and the Basic Portal option and the Collaborative Portal option are enabled.

Regardless of the values you assign to this setting, users can open any home page by typing one of the following values in the browser address bar:

 

To open the default home page that is defined by this setting, type /ibi_apps.

To open the New Start Page, type /ibia_apps/start.

To open the WebFOCUS Home Page, type /ibi_apps/home.

To open the Legacy home page, type /ibi_apps/legacyhome.

To open the Portals Home Page, type /ibi_apps/portals.

To open a Custom Welcome Page, type /ibi_apps/, followed by the remaining path to the custom welcome page.

 

In the webfocus.cfg file, the Redirect /ibi_apps to setting maps to the IBI_HOME_PAGE_CONFIGURATION setting.

 

When the WebFOCUS Home Page option is selected, IBI_HOME_PAGE_CONFIGURATION=HOME.

When the Legacy Home Page option is selected, IBI_HOME_PAGE_CONFIGURATION=LEGACY.

When the Custom Welcome Page option is selected, IBI_HOME_PAGE_CONFIGURATION=CUSTOM.

When the New Start Page option is selected, IBI_HOME_PAGE_CONFIGURATION=DEFAULT, but because this is the default value, the webfocus.cfg file does not display the IBI_HOME_PAGE_CONFIGURATION setting.

 

In the webfocus.cfg file, the Show Legacy Home Page option in Banner Links check box maps to the IBI_HOME_PAGE_LEGACY_LINKS setting.

 

When the Show Legacy Home Page check box is selected, IBI_HOME_PAGE_LEGACY_LINKS=TRUE.

When this check box is cleared, IBI_HOME_PAGE_LEGACY_LINKS=FALSE.

 

In the webfocus.cfg file, the /ibi_apps/ field maps to the IBI_DEFAULT_WELCOME_PAGE setting.
