User-Facing Messages

User-facing messages may be configured in the section. At this point the only supported message is what is displayed to a user when his/her authentication fails. This presupposes that the server is using the supplied authorization servlet, of course and if another authorizatiion method is in use (e.g. REMOTE_HEADER) then this will be ignored.

Example 1.

Basic configuration with a customized message if authentication fails.

    <service name="main-server"
         <retryMessage>Authentication Failed! Note: Only members of
          active projects are able to sign in.</retryMessage>

This would be displayed on authorization page if an invalid login were tried. In this case it informs the user that while s/he may try again, if there is no active project associated with this login, it will continue to fail.
