How to Brand the Self-Service Portal

After you install the Microsoft BitLocker Administration and Monitoring (MBAM) Self-Service Portal, you can brand the Self-Service Portal with your company name, Help Desk URL, and “notice” text. You can also change the Session Timeout setting to make the end user’s session expire after a specified period of inactivity.

To set the session time-out and branding for the Self-Service Portal

  1. To set the time-out period for the end user’s session, start the Internet Information Services Manager, or run inetmgr.exe.

  2. Browse to Sites > Microsoft BitLocker Administration and Monitoring > SelfService > ASP.NET > Session State, and change the Time-out value under Cookie Settings to the number of minutes after which the end user’s Self-Service Portal session will expire. The default is 5. To disable the setting so that there is no time-out, set the value to 0.

  3. To set the branding items for the Self-Service Portal, start the Internet Information Services Manager, or run inetmgr.exe.

  4. Browse to Sites > Microsoft BitLocker Administration and Monitoring > SelfService > Application Settings.

  5. From the Name column, select the item that you want to change, and change the default value to reflect the name that you want to use. The following table lists the values that you can set.

    Caution
    Do not change the value in the Name column (CompanyName*), as it will cause the Self-Service Portal to stop working.
