Pre-Filled Credentials for vSphere 6.5+ Web/HTML5 client
May 16, 2018
So I can’t take really any credit for this blog post as the original work was all done by William Lam. I have my own homelab and also maintain a few labs at work that are hidden off in their own networks. This little trick comes in real handy. Mainly because I have quite a few environments to log into and it makes it simple when I don’t need to remember which domain they are under. The location of the file has changed under 6.5 and 6.7 so I just figured I would update his original post with the location in the new versions.
The file in question is unpentry.jsp that needs to be modified. In version 6.0 the file is located at /usr/lib/vmware-sso/vmware-sts/webapps/websso/WEB-INF/views/unpentry.jsp. The new file is located at /usr/lib/vmware-sso/vmware-sts/webapps/ROOT/WEB-INF/views/unpentry.jsp.
Obviously, the actual login info will match your environment. Once those are modified and saved, you will see the wonderful screen when pulling up your environment:
You may need to click on the fields for the Login button to light up, but hey….no more typing username and passwords in!
Thanks again to William for the info. Now if we could just get a skin creator/ theme engine for the HTML5 client………Follow @it_muscle
