Configuring General Portal Settings

There are two main options for configuring a portal:

  • Modify an existing layout
  • Configure a new portal

To configure the settings in the General section for a new portal

  1. Navigate to the Portals > Portals page.
  2. Click Add Portal or Configure next to the portal you want to configure. The Add Portal or Edit Portal screen displays.
  3. In the General section, enter a descriptive name for the portal in the Portal Name field. This name is part of the path of the Secure Mobile Access portal URL. For example, if your Secure Mobile Access portal is hosted at, and you created a portal named “sales,” then you can access the sub-site at
  4. Enter the title for the Web browser window in the Portal Site Title field.
  5. To display a banner message to users before they log in to the portal, enter the banner title text in the Portal Banner Title field.
  6. Enter an HTML compliant message or edit the default message in the Login Message field. This message is shown to users on the custom login page.
  7. The Portal URL field is automatically populated based on your SMA appliance network address and Portal Name.
  8. To enable visibility of your custom logo, message, and title information on the login page, select Display custom login page.
  9. Select Enable HTTP meta tags for cache control to apply HTTP meta tag cache control directives to the portal. Cache control directives include:

    • <meta http-equiv="pragma" content="no-cache">
    • <meta http-equiv="cache-control" content="no-cache">
    • <meta http-equiv="cache-control" content="must-revalidate">

    These directives help prevent client’s browsers from caching SMA portal pages and other Web content.

  10. Select Enable ActiveX Web cache cleaner to load an ActiveX cache control when users log in to the SMA appliance. The Web cache cleaner prompts the user to delete all session temporary Internet files, cookies, and browser history when the user logs out or closes the Web browser window. The ActiveX Web cache control is ignored by Web browsers that do not support ActiveX.
  11. Specify the link(s) for the Small / Medium / Wide / Large Logo to be used with Live Tile.
  12. Specify the Background Color for Live Tile. If no value is specified, the default color is #0085C3.
  13. Specify the Site Name to be displayed for Live Tile. If no value is specified, the default is the Portal Name.
