Banners and Classification Labeling

Custom Terminal Banner

Terminal banners display custom messages across the top of a user's Frame session. Banners can be used as a reminder to the user that they are using a special type of environment. This feature is often used for high security environments such as government, medical, and finance organizations. Administrators can specify the color and text of the banner for their own classification purposes.

  1. To enable this feature, navigate to the "General" tab listed under the "Settings" section of your Dashboard.

Dashboard > Settings > General Settings

Dashboard > Settings > General Settings
  1. From there, you should see a section titled “Custom banners.” Under this section, click on the “Enable custom terminal banner” toggle to enable it. A new set of options will appear.

  2. Set the banner color and text color by entering hex color codes in each field or clicking on the field to open the color chooser. Specify what you would like your banner to say by entering it in the "Message text" field. Click "Save" to apply your changes.

Leveraging the Platform Hierarchy

Customer administrators can set a default custom terminal or login banner at the Customer or Organization entity level. The custom terminal and login banner configurations are available under Update > Settings at the Customer or Organization entity level.

Custom banners set at the Customer entity level will be copied to an organization entity when the organization entity is created. A custom banner set at the Organization entity level will be copied to the Frame account settings when a new Frame account is created.

note

Custom banner definitions are not dynamically inherited from higher levels to lower levels of the Frame platform hierarchy. If you wish to leverage a custom banner at a lower level of the platform hierarchy, be sure to configure the custom banner first in the parent entity before creating the child entity.
