  • hi Anitha,

    if you will use a server side code you can create an application page under _layouts folder and use this page to check if the user has access to the department site and based on the result you can redirect the user to department site or a subsite.

  •  Hi,

    I created a redirect page (Application page)  and placed under _layouts path.In that page i am checking the logic whether user have access to the site or not. In the webconfig i have set  as follows

    <authentication mode="Forms">
          <forms loginUrl="/_login/default.aspx />

    If i type the Url as 'http://...../testsub/_layouts/Educare.MOELC.Redirect/MySiteRedirectPage.aspx' the login page popup and it works fine.

    testsub is the subsite under rootsite and all users have access to it.

    Now my issue is after Login ,how  do I link to the 'Mysiteredirectpage' page ?.[ how to redirect from login page?]

    Thanks in advance

  • hi,

    you can replace the default login page with yours. 

    have a look on this page to create your custom login page and you can combine you redirection code with the login page.
