Customize the GlobalProtect Portal Login, Welcome, and Help Pages

GlobalProtect provides default login, welcome, and/or help pages. However, you can create your own custom pages with your corporate branding, acceptable use policies, and links to your internal resources.
You can alternatively disable browser access to the portal login page in order to prevent unauthorized attempts to authenticate to the GlobalProtect portal (configure the Portal Login PageDisable option from NetworkGlobalProtectPortals<portal_configGeneral). With the portal login page disabled, you can instead use a software distribution tool, such as Microsoft’s System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), to allow your users to download and install the GlobalProtect agent.
  1. Export the default portal login, welcome, or help page.
    1. Select DeviceResponse Pages.
    2. Select the link for the type of GlobalProtect portal page.
    3. Select the Default predefined page and click Export.
  2. Edit the exported page.
    1. Use the HTML text editor of your choice to edit the page.
    2. If you want to edit the logo image that is displayed, host the new logo image on a web server that is accessible from the remote GlobalProtect clients. For example, edit the following line in the HTML to point to the new logo image:
      <img src="http://cdn.slidesharecdn.com/ Acme-logo-96x96.jpg?1382722588"/>
    3. Save the edited page with a new filename. Make sure that the page retains its UTF-8 encoding.
  3. Import the new page(s).
    1. Select DeviceResponse Pages.
    2. Select the link for the type of GlobalProtect portal page.
    3. Click Import and then enter the path and filename in the Import File field or Browse to locate the file.
    4. (Optional) Select the virtual system on which this page will be used from the Destination drop-down or select shared (default) to make it available to all virtual systems.
    5. Click OK to import the file.
  4. Configure the portal to use the new page(s).

    • Test the login page—Open a browser, go to the URL for your portal (be sure you do not add the :4443 port number to the end of the URL or you will be directed to the web interface for the firewall). For example, enter https://myportal rather than https://myportal:4443.
    The new portal login page will display.
