Hi,

My requirement is Customizing the Log on page as if i enter wrong credentials
 instead of getting the message like "The provided credentials are invalid.Please type your credentials for authentication" i need to provide some link.For that  i have modified    System.xml as
 
<logon enabled="true">
     <base-template-name>bad_credentials_redirect_link</base-template-name>               
</logon>


& i placed bad_credentials_redirect_link.xhtml file  in
\cognos\c10\webcontent\ps\login folder,bad_credentials_redirect_link.xhtml this file contains the code as

<div id="%CL_PROMPT_badCredentialsEntered_caption%">
Visit Google
</div>


But i'm not getting,Can you guide me to go forward.


Regards,
Rakesh
