Landmark Security Access

To maintain Landmark Security (classes and roles), in the Gen environment in Rich Client, go to Start > Configure > Security.  If you don’t see the Security or Configure, you will need to have your Security Administrator give you access to it.  The Infor delivered role for this is “ConfigConsoleSecurityadmin_ST”.  Have that role added to your account and wait about 30 minutes for the sync to complete.

IPA Dynamic Commands

One way to control the “clutter” on your more complex IPA processes is to utilize the concept of “Dynamic Commands”.  Many times your flows will follow a pattern of reading some sort of data, validating/manipulating the data, then taking action on that data.  You can move much of this work into Stored Procedures and set up a configuration table to tell your flow which command to execute next.  This method also allows for more granular error handling and logging.

Here is a sample configuration table and flow.  The flow will read this in and follow each step in order, and use a SQL Query node to get the command text.  The Action field shows what type of action will be completed once the stored procedure brings back the command.

Updating Landmark Main Configuration Set After AD FS Implementation

After AD FS is implemented for your Landmark and LSF environments, Landmark will need to connect to the LSF server using the thick client URL and the user principal name of your admin account.  This means that all of your LSF connections will need to be updated in Rich Client, including the Infor Lawson Connection, File Activity Connection, System Command Connection, and Web Run Connection.  You will need to update the Web Root in each of these connections to the Thick Client URL, which is most likely your LSF server URL with port 1447 (i.e. https://lsf.company.com:1447).  Check with your installer to verify the port.  The User will need to be updated to the UPN value, for instance lawson@company.com.

Landmark Update Fails with Exit Code 2

If install-lpa.pl fails with exit code 2, make sure your OS account is configured. To configure the OS account, type command secadm provision os-C -o -a in a Landmark command window.  Then try restarting the Landmark update.

 

Customize AD FS Login Screen – Illustration

To update the left-hand illustration on your AD FS login screen, open PowerShell as administrator on the AD FS server, and type the command:

set-adfswebtheme -targetname <your theme name> -illustration @{path=”<path to the  image>”}

The theme name that is delivered with the AD FS configuration is “default”, but you have the option of creating and customizing your own themes.

 

Customize AD FS Login Screen – Create Custom Theme

The theme name that is delivered with the AD FS configuration is “default”, but you have the option of creating and customizing your own themes. To create a custom theme, open PowerShell as administrator on the AD FS server, and type the command:

new-adfswebtheme -name <your theme name> -sourcename <the theme to copy>

For your first theme, you will probably want to use “default” as the source.

To activate your theme, type command:

set-adfswebconfig -activatethemename <your theme name>

 

 

 

 

Customize AD FS Login Screen – Company Logo

To update the company logo on your AD FS login screen, open PowerShell as administrator on the AD FS server, and type the command:

set-adfswebtheme -targetname <your theme name> -logo @{path=”<path to the  image”}

The theme name that is delivered with the AD FS configuration is “default”, but you have the option of creating and customizing your own themes.

 

IPA v11 Link to Download IP Designer

IP Designer is no longer downloaded from InforXtreme, starting with IPA version 11.

The link to download can now be found in the validation URLs that are generated during the install. These web pages can be found on your Landmark server at LADIR/validationurls-<productline>.htm.

Landmark 11 Validation URLs & Rich Client Links

Landmark version 11 still has the validation URLs in the LADIR folder, but the Rich Client download link has moved.

To access the Rich Client download, use the URL https://<LANDMARK-SERVER>/canvas/native/.  You will find all the Rich Client links at this location.

NOTE: In v11, the validation URLs page contains the link to download IP Designer.
