Thread: What file to customize login message?

  1. #1

    Default What file to customize login message?

    Hi everyone,

    I'm customizing my BI server login with new logo etc. but I'm not able to change the message:

    "The Pentaho User Console provides access to powerful business analytics. Login for access to your reports, analysis views and dashboards.".

    Do someone know what file to modify?

    Thank you all

    Ciao Andrea,
    the file <PENTAHO_WEBAPP>/WEB-INF/classes/org/pentaho/platform/web/jsp/messages/ is incomplete.
    Copy and translate the missed properties from the default file in the same folder.
    The message you talk about appears in UI.PUC.LOGIN.MESSAGE property.

    Probably those files don't exists in biserver-ce version.
    I have them because I got the source code from svn.

    However you can replace <%=Messages.getString("UI.PUC.LOGIN.MESSAGE")%> with the message you want in /opt/pentaho/biserver-ce/tomcat/webapps/pentaho/jsp/PUCLogin.jsp.
    Instead, if you want multilingual messages, try to create the directory path /opt/pentaho/biserver-ce/tomcat/webapps/pentaho/WEB-INF/classes/org/pentaho/platform/web/jsp/messages
    and put inside it the file I attach (unzip it). Then make a copy of it with name and translate its content.
