Login Page does not always direct to the desired page

Hi All,

I wanted to go from my Login Page directly to a dashboard (instead of the Home page) (Pentaho BA Server version 8.0). For this, I made appropriate change in the

biserver-ce/tomcat/webapps/pentaho/index.jsp file as shown below :

 

 

<html>

<head>

<title>Pentaho BI Platform</title>

< META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" CONTENT="0;URL=./Home" >    ------------ changed to <META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" CONTENT="0;URL="myreporturl">

</head>

<body>

</body>

</html>

 

 

This however does not work always. On first login any day, the Home page is displayed. When I log out and log in again, the correct dashboard is displayed.

Even if the display is proper, reopening the link in incognito window or a different browser leads to the same problem (logging out and  re-logging helps).

Moreover, every time the server is restarted, the problem is faced.

 

 

Can somebody help me resolve this issue ? Seems that server cache and browser cache are part of the problem..
