Our team is in the process of creating and deploying a sites page for our organization's users. We are wondering if there is any settings or source file we can have the sites as the default homepage instead of the portal. For example if the user is on any maps or apps and they select home, it would redirect to the sites page and not the homes page. If we can extend this and somehow redirect other portal pages like gallery, content, etc, that would be great. Our concern is the redundancy which can lead to confusion on part of users who are not GIS or ESRI saavy.

Good question, and I am wondering the same thing.  Sites is a good option to tailor content to specific groups, but to have users needing to land on the home page and then click to get to the site seems redundant.

We are looking to do the exact thing with our portal.  We would like to assign each member to login to their site instead of to the homepage.  Have you heard from anyone how to do this?

We updated to 11.1 and still dont have this option available. Understand why they don't allow for this. But makes for a good option.

I would really like this option. It would be so nice to have our members login and just land on their site page and not have to worry about all of the other departments and other areas that they have no interest in.

The workaround I used was to apply a http redirect in IIS manager that redirects traffic from the main portal page to the main sites page.

But you were not able to redirect individuals to their own site, correct?

That's correct, the redirect applies to all users.

Hi @EricAndersen1 do you mind sharing how?

To a degree, I worked this out with the URL rewrite IIS module with a redirect at the portal site level so the  */home/index.html will go to the ArcGIS for sites page.

I havent been able to get the /home to go there though

 

Do you mind sharing your method?
