  • An issue has been identified where the HTML text is not visible in the login banner in certain circumstances.
  • The login banner does not reset to default so if affected by this issue it is not possible to simply create a new banner message.
  • HTML formatting has been removed from the banner configuration and will be added back in a future release.


There is no resolution at this time, please follow the steps outlined in the workaround.

  • Download and open the attached formattedText.htm file in a web browser.
  • Opening the file you will notice one line and the 'Login Message' text.
  • Copy the 'Login Message' text and paste it in the Content box when creating a login message in Aria Operation.
    • To create a Login Message go to Administration - Global Settings - User Access, scroll down to Enable and Edit the Login Message.
  • Type the required login message in front of the 'Login Message' text and then delete the 'Login Message', this will ensure the HTML formatting is saved.
  • Save the new message.
