Login pages allow you to create dashboards that require authentication to access. You can define your own authentication endpoint to perform the authentication yourself or use a third party OAuth provider to do so. To create your login page, you can use the New-UDLoginPage and LoginPage parameter of New-UDDashboard.

$Dashboard = New-UDDashboard -LoginPage $LoginPage -Page @(
$MyDashboardPage
)

Authentication Methods

You can use one or more authentication methods for a login page. UD currently supports the following authentication methods.

To specify an authentication method for a login page, use the New-UDAuthenticationMethod cmdlet.

$AuthenticationMethod = New-UDAuthenticationMethod -Endpoint {
param([PSCredential]$Credentials)
if ($Credentials.UserName -eq "Adam" -and $Credentials.GetNetworkCredential().Password -eq "SuperSecretPassword") {
New-UDAuthenticationResult -Success -UserName "Adam"
}
New-UDAuthenticationResult -ErrorMessage "You aren't Adam!!!"
}
$LoginPage = New-UDLoginPage -AuthenticationMethod $AuthenticationMethod

To specify multiple authentication methods, just pass an array of authentication methods to the New-UDLoginPage cmdlet.

$AuthenticationMethod = @()
$AuthenticationMethod += New-UDAuthenticationMethod -AppId 1234 -AppSecret Abc123 -Provider Facebook
$AuthenticationMethod += New-UDAuthenticationMethod -AppId 1234 -AppSecret Abc123 -Provider Twitter
$AuthenticationMethod += New-UDAuthenticationMethod -AppId 1234 -AppSecret Abc123 -Provider Google
$AuthenticationMethod += New-UDAuthenticationMethod -AppId 1234 -AppSecret Abc123 -Provider Microsoft
$AuthenticationMethod += New-UDAuthenticationMethod -Endpoint {
}
$LoginPage = New-UDLoginPage -AuthenticationMethod $AuthenticationMethod

Customizing a Login Page

There are several aspects of the login page you can customize to meet your branding and color preferences.

  • Logo - Use New-UDImage to specify the logo you wish to show above the login dialog.

  • PageBackgroundColor - The background color of the page. This can be any hex color.

  • LoginFormBackgroundColor - The background color of the login form. This can be any hex color.

  • LoginFormFontColor - The font color of the login form. This can be any hex color.

  • LoadingText - The loading text to show while authentication is in progress

Accessing the User name in a Dashboard

In any Endpoint script block, you can access the user name. This means that Charts, Dynamic Pages, Tables and other controls can access the $User variable to get the current logged in user name.

See Variables Defined in Endpoints for more information.
