How to enable the Entity ID field on the login screen


By default, the Entity ID is not displayed when logging into the thin client and entity 1 is used.




In order to log into a different PaperVision Enterprise entity the global_en.resx file must be modified to display the Entity ID field. Without this modification, users will automatically be logged into entity 1.


To display the Entity ID at the login screen for AJAX based PaperVision websites, follow these steps:

  1. Browse to [Program Files] Digitech SystemsPaperVisionPVEWebApp_GlobalResources
  2. Make a backup of the global_en.resx file.
  3. Right-click on the file and select Properties. Uncheck Read-only and click OK.
  4. Open global_en.resx in Notepad.
  5. Search for “gblLoginShowEntID”.
  6. There will only be one match for this search. On the next line, change <value>false</value>
