Has anyone implemented an Epicor login message


(Mazin Asmar) #1

I have a need to implement an Epicor login message that would only appear based on a set expiration date. I am thinking of implementing a Tip with a UD field for the expiration date/time. Then I can do a trace during the login process and determine which BO/methods are being called.

Any other ideas are welcome.

Thx.

There’s the actual Tip BO… which does exactly this… Does’nt have an expiration date but taht can be set via BPM

I assume you mean the BO is called even when the tips are disabled by the user, to and set the tip number via BPM at login time.

The challenge I encountered is where to insert the BPM. The login trace shows BO calls to UserFile and Tip. But its best not to insert a method call during UserFile as this could interrupt the login process if you supply the wrong params and its best to be logged in twice to disable the BPM.

Also, if the user has disable displaying login tips the BO will not be called.

Doesnt the user table contain a last logged in field? You could use a Data Directive to trigger on a change of that field.
