Customize API Portal user login

You can customize what API Portal page your API consumers see on first log in, and you can also enable ReCaptcha and user account locking on the login page.

Change the page displayed after first login

You can change the API Portal page users see when they first log in successfully to API Portal. The default behavior is:

  • Display the Applications page if at least one application exists
  • Display the API Catalog page if no applications exist

To change this, follow these steps:

  1. In the Joomla! Administrator Interface (JAI), click Components > API Portal > Additional Settings.
  2. In the Redirect after login field, enter a menu link (for example, /index.php?option=com_apiportal&view=home) or a menu alias (for example, /home) to redirect the user to after successful login.
  3. Click Save.

Enable ReCaptcha and user account locking

You can customize API Portal user login to display a ReCaptcha and lock the user account after a number of failed login attempts:

  1. In the JAI, click Components > API Portal > Login Protection.
  2. Click Yes to enable login protection for API Portal.
  3. Enter a value for the number of failed login attempts before a ReCaptcha is displayed.
  4. Enter a value for the number of failed login attempts before the user account is locked.
  5. Enter a value in seconds for how long the user account is locked.
  6. Click Save.
