The customization uses only native Primo interfaces, so accessibility should be equivalent to out-of-the-box, but the customization has not been tested for accessibility.

To enable this module, you will need to:

  • Declare the module (step 2)
  • Insert a declaration to hold the code from the Central Package (step 3)


  1. In the PBO, make sure you have the “Inherit Central Package” box checked.
  2. In your local package, in the custom.js file, include the module ‘forceLogin’ in your app definition. For example:

    var app = angular.module('viewCustom', ['forceLogin']);
  3. If you are using other angular modules, include them in your app definition as well. For example:

    var app = angular.module('viewCustom', ['toggleInstitutions', 'forceLogin']);
  4. Also in the custom.js file, add the following line of code within the anonymous function (that is, before the closing brackets at the end of the file):

    app.component('prmUserAreaExpandableAfter', { bindings: { parentCtrl: '<' }, template: '<force-login></force-login>'});
  5. Zip and upload your package in the PBO.
  6. Deploy your view.
