Welcome banner or /etc/issue pre-login message equivalent

Our organization has an IT policy that a “welcome banner” that is ~200 words, must be displayed before a user is presented a login prompt.

For a GNU/Linux console login, this is accomplished with /etc/issue . For an SSHD server this is enabled with the “Banner” option, see SSHD_CONFIG(5). Several other web apps have similar “click-through” informational banner options.

I am working on deploying a (RE for now) Checkmk instance in our environment, but have not been able to find a “welcome banner” configuration option. Have I missed this feature? Alternately, how might I best add such a feature?

This is best achieved by filing a feature request with the @tribe29 developers.

How about “Global settings > Customize login screen”?

Thanks for the feedback all. I’ve created a patch to correct this feature (adding a popup pre-login message), and have in queue to present the patch to the @tribe29 feature requests sub-forum (after I make a little more progress with deliverable tasks).
