Facility to manage access by parametrized url on an unauthorized folder

If a user accesses from a third-party portal via a Cognos parameterized url on a Cognos folder to which he does not have rights,
the native cognos home screen is displayed with this error message :
"Unable to load requested view. Displaying home view Instead."

We would like to handle this scenario and display a specific page without opening the Cognos Analytics home.
Because we have sensitive populations of users who access Cognos reports transparently from various portals.
If they are not authorized, we would like to control this context and display a specific alert message page to them.
Because for them the Cognos screen, which he does not know, and its message are very disturbing and waste audience time.
