Access a custom page from an external portal

In some cases, you might want to access a custom IBM Spectrum LSF Application Center page that you created from an external portal, and do not want the IBM Spectrum LSF Application Center navigation tree to be displayed.

You can access any custom page by adding the parameter &embed=yes at the end of the URL.

For example, to call the example custom page submitjob from an external portal:


The IBM Spectrum LSF Application Center login screen is displayed only the first time a user accesses the URL. Logging in is not required to access subsequent custom pages in LSF Application Center.

The IBM Spectrum LSF Application Center login screen also displays when the session times out.

Note: According to the your browser settings, it is possible that when the user attempts to view the URL, the action is blocked. You need to select Allow blocked content, but this action is only required once per user.

For Internet Explorer, you need to configure the following settings so Internet Explorer does not block the action:

  1. In Internet Explorer, selectTools > Internet Options.
  2. Select the Advanced tab.
  3. Scroll down to the Security section and make sure that the following option is selected: Allow active content to run in files on My Computer.
  4. Click OK and restart Internet Explorer.

    The change takes effect the next time you open Internet Explorer.
