MWG || User welcome page per day

Jump to solution

Hi All,

 

I am trying to create a welcome page by MWG (to introduce some company policy)

Which request user enter Username and Password (it can be a pop up or web page)

 

But When I use the default policy "Cookie Auth with login page"

User need to login again after every time if they close the browser

 

 May it be a way to do the follow?

1. User need to login once per day

2. A welcome page show once per day

 

Regards

Tony

Hello,

the idea of cookie authentication is to store the result into a cookie. The cookie is wiped by the browser whenever it is closed. If you want the "session" to survive a browser restart it is possible to bind the authentication result not to a cookie, but have MWG store the IP address and user name for a specific time.

This was done already in this thread:

https://community.mcafee.com/t5/Web-Gateway/Captive-portal-methods/td-p/410935

By using the "time based sessions" you can configure a user to have to login like every 10 hours, which means when he ends his shift and comes back in the morning he is asked to authentication once again.

If you only need a welcome page (without authentication) there is a rule set in the product that allows this to be done. If you set the timeout to 10 hours you achieve the same result like "once a day".
