How do I tie all terminal logins in Cache

Hi I am trying to tie all terminal logins in Cache so that rather than the user being presented with the Cache login and password the user is presented with my custom login page.

I can do this via a generic user so that once the generic user logs in they are presented with my Cache login page however is there a way to do this so that I can bypass the below login page and go straight to my login?

Node: myserver, Instance: CACHE

Thanks in advance

John, you don't mention it explicitly, but it seems likely that your Cache is running on Windows, and you have enabled the %Service_Telnet service so that your users connect to Cache from a telnet client (which could be Cache Terminal).

In that case, [@Robert.Cemper]'s answer to this post should help you. And if it does, please credit him by setting the checkmark / tick / hook alongside it.

Another method to consider is Delegated Authentication (http://localhost:57775/csp/docbook/DocBook.UI.Page.cls?KEY=GCAS_delegated).  The benefit here is your custom authentication code gets run BEFORE the user is granted any kind of access to the system.  The issue with relying on the routine started as soon as the login is that the user has already "breached the walls" and is in the system (and consuming a license) before you authenticate them.   If your code fails for any reason or if there is a hole that allows them to break out of the code then they will likely have complete access to at least that namespace.

With Delegated Authentication you are hooking your custom code into the authentication flow of Cache.  If there is any failure of code in this process the user gets "Access Denied".

One limitation is that you are only allowed a limited amount of code (2000 or 4000 commands if memory serves) to complete you authentication.  After that delays are inserted into the process.

Hope that helps.
