Redirect Rapid Install page to access the E-Business Suite login page

In some environments the URL to access E-Business Suite is in the form of:

http://<web server host name>.<domain>


http://<web server host name>.<domain>:<port number>

which brings up the 'Oracle Applications Rapid Install Portal' page and displays the logon link

'E-Business Home Page' (<host name>.<domain>/OA_HTML/AppsLocalLogin.jsp) to login.

In some cases it could be interesting to access directly to the AppsLocalLogin.jsp login page bypassing

the Rapid Install portal page to avoid to click on the 'Apps Logon Links' then  'E-Business Home Page'  links.



1. Edit index.html and add at the top of the file :
<meta http-equiv="refresh"
content="0;url=http://<host name>.<domain>/OA_HTML/AppsLocalLogin.jsp">


2. Add the following line in the url_fw.conf file

(should be under $IAS_CONFIG_HOME/Apache/Apache/conf directory):

RewriteRule ^/$ /OA_HTML/AppsLocalLogin.jsp [R,L]
then check that the following line exists in the httpd.conf file:
include "%s_iASconfig_home%/Apache/Apache/conf/url_fw.conf"

3. Bounce apache and clear browser caches
