Description Andrew Cathrow 2013-07-10 10:30:15 EDT
Create new entry in branding properties file for "Message of the Day"
This should allow an administrator to create a MoTD file that contains important system related information.
Comment 3 Oved Ourfali 2013-07-31 16:30:01 EDT
Posted patches that support the following:
1. Setting the user message of the day using engine-config (entry is called UserMessageOfTheDay)
2. Viewing the message in the login page in the user portal.
