Just go to Control Panel -> Portal Settings, switch to Authentication tab and change the setting How do users authenticate?.

Hi,

We have one more option to change the authentication type for login.

Add the below properties in the portal-ext.properties file so that it will authenticate by screenName.

#
# The portal can authenticate users based on their email address, screen
# name, or user id.
#
#company.security.auth.type=emailAddress
company.security.auth.type=screenName
#company.security.auth.type=userId
