Managing Banners

From the Banner page, administrators can upload a text file for the Advisory and Consent Banner. The banner is typically an advisory/warning notice to be displayed before the Sign-in page.

Only ASCII file format is supported for the banner file; the banner is a single text file with a maximum file size of 4KB.

To upload a text file for the Banner page:

  1. Click Security on the sidebar, and select the Banner tab. 
    The Banner page opens. If banner text has been imported, it will be displayed here.
  2. Toggle Enable Sign-In Banner on to display the Advisory Notice and Consent Banner upon user sign-in.

  3. Click Browse and select the file in the Open File dialog box. 
    The banner filename is now displayed on the Upload Banner task bar.


    To select a different banner file, click Cancel.

  4. Click Upload. The banner text is now displayed in the pane. 


    When the banner is enabled, the time when the banner actually gets displayed may vary with the service in use (such as SSH, Telnet, serial port, or Web interface) and how the services are configured. For example, in some cases, the banner will be displayed right after the sign-in and before the password is entered, whereas with the Web interface, the banner will be displayed before the user gets to the Sign-in page.

  5. To apply your changes, click Apply.

  6. To delete the current banner click Delete. A pop-up message will appear:

    If you are sure you wish to delete the banner message, click Delete again.


    You can also install and manage banner files from the CLI using the banner command. The Makito X supports FTP and TFTP client, as well as SCP client and server.
