This article will explain how to add hyperlinks on Sign-in Notifications.
Problem or Goal
To add a notification message that explains terms of use, company-specific policies, a welcome page, an end user license agreement (EULA), or a message of the day (MOTD) that includes links to the appropriate documentation.

By default, the notification page will be displayed as per the screenshot below:
Pre Sign-in Notification
Use custom sign-in pages with the sign-in notification .thtml files customized to have the desired links

Note: Any customization that has been done on the existing sign-in page will need to be moved over to LoginPage.thtml (and other pages, as-needed)

  1. Sample Templates Files
Under Admin GUI > Authentication > Signing In > Sign-In Pages > Upload Custom Sign-In Pages > Click on 'Sample'
  1. Text Editor (Example: Wordpad, notepad, etc.)
  2. Zip File Achiver (Winzip, Winrar, 7Zip, ect.)

Steps to add your desired text/hyperlinks on the notification page
  1. Unzip the Sample.Zip file and locate 
  2. Use the following variables and edit the page accordingly.
Template Variables for Pre-authenticationTemplate Variables for Post-authentication
preAuthSNTitle      -   Title of Sign-in Notification
preAuthSNProceed    -   Text for "Proceed" Button
preAuthSNDecline    -   Text for "Decline" Button
preAuthSNText      -    Content of Sign-in Notification

postAuthSNProceed    -   Text for "Proceed" Button
postAuthSNDecline    -   Text for "Decline" Button

In the following example, hyperlink was added called "Pulse Secure" (change is in BOLD)
 <form id="frmLogin_17" name="frmLogin" action=welcome.cgi method="POST" autocomplete=off>
<table id="table_SigninNotifPreAuth_3" align="center" width="80%">
        <td class="cssPageTitle"><b><% preAuthSNTitle %></b> </td>
            <textarea id="sn-preauth-text_2" class="cssNiceTextArea" name="sn-preauth-text" rows="<% preAuthSNRows %>" 
cols="110" readonly style="overflow:'auto'"><% preAuthSNText %></textarea>
        <a href="" target="_blank">Pulse Secure</a>
            <input id="sn-preauth-proceed_2" type="submit" name="sn-preauth-proceed" value="
<% preAuthSNProceed %>"/>
            <%IF preAuthSNDecline %>
                <input id="sn-preauth-decline_2" type="submit" name="sn-preauth-decline" value="
