Customize Access Request functionality

Posted on Updated on

In order to change how the access request functionality works in sharepoint 2010 you need to create an application page with your functionality, like sending out a different email than the default one. Or saving the access requests in a sharepoint list, etc, up to you what to do there.

Sharepoint 2010 has already an access request application page.  This command will tell you where its located.
Get-SPCustomLayoutsPage -Identity "AccessDenied | Confirmation | Error | Login | RequestAccess | Signout | WebDeleted

To change it, execute the following command.

Set-SPCustomLayoutsPage -Identity "RequestAccess" -RelativePath "/_layouts/custompages/reqacc.aspx" -WebApplication "{replace with web app url}"

Voila!!! Put your logic in the custom app page you created before.
