Environment

Novell SecureLogin
SSO

Situation

When a user has multiple logins to an application. They can use the "New Login Wizard" to add a second login. When they access the application they are presented with a list of credentials that a user can use to login.  However, when they change the password or a login fails, the user is presented with the PickList again and must select the user they are logging on as again.  This can cause some confusion.

Resolution

NSL can use the ReLoadPlat command to automatically set the credentials.  By modifying the application definition with the command ReLoadPlat in the appropriate places, SecureLogin automatically sets the focus of any operation to the last credentials selected in the PickList.

(Note: ReLoadPlat must be added to all relevant sections of the application definition);
