HOWTO: Customize the Login Page - JSF UI

Updated: June 14, 2024

JSF UI Deprecation
This requires to have the JSF UI addon installed on your server that is deprecated since Nuxeo Platform LTS 2019.
Please refer to the Web UI documentation.

The basic customization can be made by extending the service org.nuxeo.ecm.platform.ui.web.auth.service.PluggableAuthenticationService for the point loginScreen.

This point allows you to configure the Login Screen : header, footer, styles, openid providers ... The variable ${org.nuxeo.ecm.contextPath} can be used to avoid hardcoding the default application path (/nuxeo).

Let's create the component org.nuxeo.sample.loginPage.


<component name="org.nuxeo.sample.loginPage">
  <extension target="org.nuxeo.ecm.platform.ui.web.auth.service.PluggableAuthenticationService" point="loginScreen">
      <bodyBackgroundStyle>url("${org.nuxeo.ecm.contextPath}/img/newBackground.jpg") 0px 0px no-repeat #000</bodyBackgroundStyle>
      <videos loop="false" muted="true">
        <video src="//" type="video/webm" />
        <video src="//" type="video/mp4" />
      <loginBoxBackgroundStyle>url("${org.nuxeo.ecm.contextPath}/img/newLoginBox.jpg") 0 0 no-repeat #ff0000</loginBoxBackgroundStyle>

It is recommended to have several video encoded with main standards. Offering a WEBM and a MP4 fallback helps you providing your video for all your users. Here is a script, using ffmpeg to encode any source with 2 pass encoding for a better result:


OUT=$(echo $1 | sed 's/^\(.*\)\.[a-zA-Z0-9]*$/\1/')

# webm 2 pass
ffmpeg -y -i $IN -f webm -threads 0 -b:v 1M -crf 22 -s $SIZE -pass 1 -an  /dev/null
ffmpeg -y -i $IN -f webm -threads 0 -b:v 1M -crf 22 -s $SIZE -pass 2 -an $OUT.webm

# mp4 2 pass
ffmpeg -y -i $IN -vcodec libx264 -f mp4 -threads 0 -b:v 1M -crf 22 -s $SIZE -pass 1 -an  /dev/null
ffmpeg -y -i $IN -vcodec libx264 -f mp4 -threads 0 -b:v 1M -crf 22 -s $SIZE -pass 2 -an $OUT.mp4
