Documentation update

   

To provide a better user experience, we have now created a separate documentation space for BMC Helix Automation Console (previously called BMC Helix Vulnerability Management).
Users of BMC Helix Automation Console can find the latest documentation at BMC Helix Automation Console. .

Configuring a notice and consent banner

Some organizations are required to display a notice and consent banner when users log on to the application. These notices may contain the Standard Mandatory DoD-approved content that users need to read and agree before accessing the application. TrueSight Automation Console enables administrators to set up a banner to comply with your organizations standards. 

This topic provides the instructions to set up such a notice banner, which is displayed every time a user logs on to TrueSight Automation Console. 

Before you begin

Before setting up a notice banner, as an administrator ensure that the following tasks are complete: 

  • The notice content is created, in an HTML format, and saved as a .txt file.

    Sample notice content
  • Permissions to configure settings on the TrueSight Server Automation Application Server are obtained.
    For more information about how to change the basic Application Server settings, see  Changing the basic Application Server settings  in TrueSight Server Automation online documentation. 

Setting up notice banner for TrueSight Automation Console

You must set up the banner on the host where the TrueSight Server Automation Application Server is installed. 

  1. Place the notice text file on a host where the TrueSight Server Automation Application Server is installed. 
  2. Start the blasadmin utility to access the Application Server Administration console.
    For details, see  Starting the Application Server Administration console  in TrueSight Server Automation online documentation. 

  3. Run the following command to set the banner.

    set auth IsNoticeAndConsentBannerEnabled true
  4. Run the following command to specify the name and location of the notice and consent banner file. 

    set auth NoticeAndConsentBannerPathName "C:<path>\<filename>"

    Example:

    set auth NoticeAndConsentBannerPathName "C:\NoticeAndConsentBanner\noticeAndConsentBanner.txt"

    The banner is set and is displayed every time a user logs on to TrueSight Automation Console. 

    Do I need to restart the Application Server after running the set commands?

    No. You do not need to restart the Application Server after running the set commands. However, if you update the file or make any changes to the banner file on the Application Server, you must run the

    set authNoticeAndConsentBannerPathName command for the changes to take effect.
