How can I add a text disclaimer banner to CAPC login screen?


Release : 3.x up to but not including 3.7



Add the following to the bottom of ~install_location/sso/css/sso_styles.css

.aui-button.aui-button-submit:before { content: “Your disclaimer text”  

  font-size: 10px;
  color: #414141;
  display: inline-block;
  position: top;
  left: 6px;
  top: 2px;
  max-width: 400px;


After doing this you will need to recycle the SSO process for it to take affect

  • Redhat 7: systemctl stop caperfcenter_sso / systemctl start caperfcenter_sso / systemctl status caperfcenter_sso
  • Redhat 6: /etc/init.d/caperfcenter_sso stop|start|status

Additional Information

  • If the above steps don't immediately work, you should clear your browser cache and the text should show on the login page
  • It should be noted that this is language specific (if you set your browser to be "French" the rest of the login dialog will be in French)
