I have configured Google SSO as an authentication method to login and it is working.
I would like to further improve the user experience by creating a landing page before login to indicate users that they are logging into ondemand website. Is this something I can configure in ood_portal.yml?
Currently, when I browse the URL of where OOD is at, it straight redirects me to google authentication.

Hi and thanks for the question.
The only customization that you can do around something like this would be if you are using ‘dex’ than there is some customization possible which is documented here:
Outside that I’m not aware of a way to customize that particular page.
Thanks for the reply.
I don’t think I need a customisation on that particular page on google SSO. What I want is the page before going to google SSO. The website structure I envision is
Users browse URL of the OOD server
They are redirected to a landing page. In this page, I can have a link for users to login with SSO. (This is the page I want)
Users are redirected to google SSO page. This does not require customisation
Do you know if anyone has done it before?

which displays /var/www/ood/public/header.png. That file has a branding image.
I also have
which allows me to put messages in yaml format to display on the landing page, e.g., on my dev system
This is OnDemand Dev - a …
Now, this does look to have some possible buggy-ness to it in how it may present and what happens if someone clicks
cancel but this does provide a way to show a page before the login.
The previous discourse solved what I wanted to do. Thank you!
