Each time you log in to the application, the default first view displayed is the "Home view". But you can select the default view to display when you connect.

There are two ways to set the default view: a generic one and an individual one.

Configure the system property

A system property defines the default view displayed for all users.

By default, the "Home" view will be selected.

To modify this property

  1. Go to Configuration view → General
  2. Click Edit 
  3. Select the required view for the Default index view after login property 
  4. Click Save

Using the URL to pass the default index view

As explained, the first way to define the default view is a generic one, applied for all users. There is a second way that allows each user to set the default view displayed after the login process.

The base URL is

# Enterprise edition client

After this you can add the Abiquo GUI view name.

parameter value

The value supplied must be valid according to the above table. If not, the default view displayed will be the "Home" view.

This method has priority over the previous System Property method, which means that the view displayed if this method is used will be the defaultIndexView value supplied.


There is a privileges limitation using both methods. If the user doesn't have the privilege to display the selected view, the default view will be the "Home" view.
For example, the default USER role doesn't have access to "Infrastructure" view, so if a user with the USER role logs in to the Abiquo GUI and tries to access the Infrastructure view (by either method), the user will see the "Home" view.
