This topic describes how to customize text, and rename applications in the Forefront Unified Access Gateway (UAG) portal.

Customizing text in the portal

To customize strings in the Forefront UAG portal

  1. On the Forefront UAG server, open the folder Microsoft Forefront Unified Access Gateway\von\PortalHomePage\Data\Languages, and copy the language file that you want to customize to the ...\PortalHomePage\Data\Languages\CustomUpdate folder.

  2. In the ...\PortalHomePage\Data\Languages\CustomUpdate folder, open the file you copied in a text editor.

  3. Locate the strings that you want to change, and replace the current value with the text that you want to appear for end users.

    For example, to change the default page title, locate the string Application and Network Access Portal and replace it with your own string Contoso Portal.

  4. Save the file, and then reload the portal site from a client Web browser.

    The page shows the updated string.

Renaming applications in the portal

You can customize and localize application names and descriptions by editing the language file in the Forefront UAG portal, and adding new strings with an ID in the format: Name_[application id], ShortDesc_[application id], LongDesc_[application id].

This procedure assumes that you have already customized the language file used by the Forefront UAG portal.

To rename a portal application

  1. On the Forefront UAG server, open the Forefront UAG Management console.

  2. In the Applications list, click the application whose name you want to change, and then click Edit.

  3. On the Application Properties dialog box, on the General tab, select and copy the Application ID.

  4. On the Forefront UAG server, open the folder Microsoft Forefront Unified Access Gateway\von\PortalHomePage\Data\Languages\CustomUpdate, and open the language file.

  5. If the application ID is 0123456789ABCDEF0123456789ABCDEF, in the language file, add the following:

      Copy Code
    <String id=”Name_0123456789ABCDEF0123456789ABCDEF” locID=”Name_0123456789ABCDEF0123456789ABCDEF”>Application name</String>
    <String id=”ShortDesc_0123456789ABCDEF0123456789ABCDEF” locID=”ShortDesc_0123456789ABCDEF0123456789ABCDEF”>Application short description</String>
    <String id=”LongDesc_0123456789ABCDEF0123456789ABCDEF” locID=”LongDesc_0123456789ABCDEF0123456789ABCDEF”>Application long description</String>
    

  6. Save the file, and then reload the portal site from a client Web browser.

    The page shows the application with the updated name strings.
