    Question

    How do we enable or disable available login types when authenticating in WebVoyage?

    Answer

    1. cd /m1/voyager/xxxdb/tomcat/vwebv/context/vwebv/ui/
    2. Open webvoyage.properties for editing
    3. Search for page.logIn.loginType
    4. Comment out each line referring to a login type that should be made unavailable.
    5. To enable or disable the use of the PIN, change setting to Y (enable) or N (disable) for option.usePIN=
