Add sign-in page description

Applies To: Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2012 R2

To Add sign-in page description

To add a sign-in page description to the sign-in page, use the following Windows PowerShell PowerShell cmdlet and syntax.

add sign in description

Set-AdfsGlobalWebContent -SignInPageDescriptionText "<p>Sign-in to Contoso requires device registration. Click <A href='http://fs1.contoso.com/deviceregistration/'>here</A> for more information.</p>" 

Important

The string for the SignInPageDescriptionText parameter supports both pure HTML with the tags and without. Therefore, you can also run the following cmdlet without using the <p> tag. Set-AdfsGlobalWebContent -SignInPageDescriptionText "Sign-in to Contoso requires device registration. Click <A href='http://fs1.contoso.com/deviceregistration/'>here</A> for more information."

After the sign-in page is customized, the customization takes precedence; therefore, you should customize for all languages that you want to support. All customized content takes a locale parameter. When you configure localized content, it should be configured with a country-less locale first, for example, "en", before you configure country and region-specific locale such as "en-us".
