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.
