customizing the login page for shibboleth

Your running IdP is in /opt/shibboleth-idp, but it was installed from source that would be somewhere else. You'll need to either find or get the source distribution that goes with what you're running. In the source distribution, you'll find login.jsp and login.css. You update them there, then run the script to build the updated WAR file and deploy it.

If you aren't the one that installed this IdP, you might try "find / -name login.jsp" to see where the original source is.

You *should* do this on a non-production deployment first, especially if you haven't done this before and don't know what you're doing. Then, once you're happy with the changes, you can copy them to the production server and run to build and deploy them.

Subject: Fwd: customizing the login page for shibboleth

Hi, I would like to customize the login page and I'm trying to follow the shibboleth wiki, but I'm not sure where to find " src/main/webapp/login.jsp within your IdP distribution package" in order to modify it. My shibboleth resides in /opt/shibboleth-idp, but I don't have a src folder in there. Any help would be appreciated.
