Add custom text to the login page

You can customize the Splunk Web login page with plain or HTML formatted text. Use the login_content option to add custom text to the settings stanza in web.conf. Follow the syntax shown here.

login_content = <content_string>

Restart the splunkweb process after editing web.conf to make the text visible.

Note: Text and formatting can be no longer than one line in web.conf, as shown in the example below.


login_content = This is a <b>production server</b>.<br>For expensive searches try: <a href="http://server2:8080">server2</a>

For more information, see the web.conf spec file in the Admin Manual.
