Make a template file
The above flow is using login.ftlh template file. Let’s create it.
  • Right-click on the web folder and select the new free maker template
Select Template and add details. It is up to you to make a beautiful design using UI-Editor.
Edit HTML to add existing code. You can make your own.
<!doctype html>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
	  <title> Jans Agama Basic Auth flow </title>
	  <hr />
	  [#if !(success!true)]
	  	<p class="fs-6 text-danger mb-3">${msgs["login.errorMessage"]}</p>
	  <hr />
	  <form method="post" enctype="application/x-www-form-urlencoded">
			Username: <inputtype="text" class="form-control" name="username" id="username" value="${uid!}" required>
			Password: <input type="password" class="form-control" id="password" name="password">
			<input type="submit" class="btn btn-success px-4" value="Login">
 		input {
 			border: 1px solid #000000;
Once you save the file. It will add [#ftl output_format="HTML"] which is needed because we are using [#if... instead of <#if....
Notice If you want to add code like <inputtype="submit" class="btn btn-success px-4" value="${msgs["login.login"]}"> then it will not work instead of add <inputtype="submit" class="btn btn-success px-4" value="${msgs['login.login']}">.You need to use a single quote inside a double quote.
